Ah, red lilies and ball jars…

I haven’t been painting much due to the CRUD hitting my house with an absolute vengeance  and it overstayed its welcome I can tell you. So, painting was not on my priority list unfortunately. I did manage this little one, a 5 x 7″ watercolor on aquabord, pleased that I got a ball jar painted, even more pleased that I could sit up long enough to do it. The flu is horrible :-(. Now that I am on the mend, magic is about to happen with my watercolors ;-). I just sketched out a very complicated piece and already I am looking at it and shaking my head in doubt. What am I thinking! I told myself at the beginning of the year that I was going to challenge myself and pick subjects that would push me and make me struggle for reaching perfection in this medium. Hence the gourd painting (that was HARD!). This next piece will probably cause me to drink a few glasses of wine a night while dipping my brushes. Humm…

At any rate, here is my little ‘Having a Ball with Red Lilies’ painting. Enjoy! (This watercolor is available for sale in my Etsy store)


  1. That’s beautiful! Wow. Your perpective and the way you rendered the Ball jar is quite impressive. Found your blog through the A to Z sign-up.



    1. Thanks Zoanna! Hope you visit again! The challenge should be fun, LOTS of cooking and art will be posted!! 🙂
