Shot this in Trampas on the way back from the dentist in Embudo, after the light left the church in shadow, and my battery died, with Thea's phone.

This is another watercolor inspired by one of my own photographs previously featured on my other daily blog, When a Painter Snaps. That is how I work. Some of the time. At other times, I work plein air, usually when traveling. Or I may work from brand new sketches or photographs. I like to keep myself guessing!
Currently, I'm wrestling with just how I want to continue this blog. As you may know by now, I have really loved and thoroughly enjoyed the daily 6 x 6 inch paintings. And the recent Confections have really been a blast. But I am missing the chance to do more of these full-fledged watercolors. I would occasionlly like to work larger, too.
So. here's my thinking at the moment. I'm thinking I will switch from the current format of always doing the same size and the same begining bid, or, as has been the case with the Confections, one price fits all, regardless of size or complexity, to a more varied approach. One that fits not only my love of varied sibjects and styles, but differing sizes and mediums, as well.
I will be offering everything from tiny sketches to full sheet watercolors, to both smaller and larger oils, and just about everything in between. I hope it will be more entertaining than confusing, and that you will all continue to follow along.
By the way, I hope to be traveling again, soon, and will try to make my verbal input more interesting as my adventures unfold.
I hope you will all help me with this. I would love to hear your thoughts. I so appreciate each and every comment, as well as your bids! Please, don't be shy, join in, let's make this blog as interesting as it can be, together.
Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
This is the old Whatever Store in Bouse, Arizona, that I featured recently on my other blog, When A Painter Snaps, as seen from a different angle.
It was raining last night when I headed out to make camp on the desert. The farther I went, the harder it rained. I lost my internet connection when I crossed the Plomosas, so decided to go on down near Bouse. Still didn't couldn't access the internet and couldn't find a place to camp in the dark an the rain, so I pushed on. Ended up in Parker at the Walmart. Woke up this morning, it was still raining. Thought I might hole up in the Parker Library and catch up on some work. Huh! It's closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
Decided to run on up to Lake Havasu City to see what I could see. What with the rain, fog and low clouds, that turned out to be not much. Unbeliebably, could get no Verizon signal anywhere in the city. I drove a while and learned my way around, had lunch, and made today's painting. Drove down to the river, found a place to camp, and got a few photographs as the sun went down.
