R is for Route 66!

  Oh yeah... This is what I am talkin' about. Road trippin' down Route 66 and shooting pictures of all the old retro signs, signs that are long forgotten but still standing when the buildings that were accompanying them have been long gone. I have so many of these kinds of shots, they will eventually ...

Q is for Quimper Tea Cup

  This post is a day late, (shame on me!) but as I always say, better late than never... I am not in this challenge to win anyway, I am in it for myself. To challenge myself to paint every day (which I have about done so far so... yeay me!). I did paint yesterday, ...

P is for Pistachio Creme Macaron

M is for Mexican Food

  Ok, this one isn't an ACEO sized watercolor painting but it IS a watercolor painting nonetheless! I took the shot in Tucumcari, NM by the side of the road, its barely standing, this old neon sign of awesomeness... The last two years I took this trip, it was still standing. I want to do ...

L is for Lollipop all colorful and bright!

When I was a kid living in NM, we used to go to this restaurant called The Spaghetti Machine in Albuquerque. It was a special treat to go there because there was a parent trap in the area where you pay ;-). It was full of CANDY! Oh yeah, tons of the sweet stuff, including ...
