Splashing about...

I had a pleasant afternoon yesterday splashing about with paint and water. And then I sat in a chair by the river and read Billy Collins and enjoyed the cool breeze... a perfect summer afternoon.

When I woke up this morning, I discovered that Marsha Robinette at The Extraordinary Pencil had kindly sent the Arte y Pico award my way. You'll want to visit Marsha's blog. Her drawings are quite beautiful and her posts are thought provoking. Thanks so much for thinking of me, Marsha!

Oooooh--loose and luscious--I just love the colors and energy in this. It does sound like a lovely day. Congrats on the well-deserved award, Sharon!

This is a beautiful splashy wet painting - can see you enjoyed it! Congrats on the award!

I visited your site after seeing your comment on Cathy's. (isn't it fun?) I love your use of deep moody colours here, which retain that splashy watercolour transparency. A sure hand, worthy of prizes!

Sharon, wow, another lovely painting. I love the way you move the colors around. I always enjoy coming to see what you have done. Also I love the landscape called Loose Ends.
