Whether I'm working in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, or some other medium, I invite you to look over my shoulder as I force myself into my studio and battle the gremlin of self criticism.

Christmas in October
Yesterday, one of my students was working on a painting for this year's Christmas card. I had that in mind today when I dug through my "morgue" and found a house I'd photographed years ago. (Sorry, I don't remember where it's located.) Anyway, I changed the season to winter, hung some bows and a wreath on windows and door, et voila! It was fun, and I got it done in an afternoon.
I'm reasonably happy with it. Or at least I thought I was. Now, as I stare at it on my screen, I see a blue million little flaws. Maybe I can claim the builder was a little bit drunk on this job?
"Christmas Card House", about 10x10 inches, watercolor on 140# Lanaquarelle.
