March Blues

 The color challenge this month is the color blue! And boy, was that a tough one for me! On top of the color challenge I broken open the Dr. Ph Martin Watercolor set that my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas.

Kitchen Blues

detail

Using this new set was a bit different but alot of fun. I like this kitchen painting I made but after working on this for a time I realized the blue is supposed to represent something tranquil. So I painted 'Canal'. I enjoyed the exercis of doing this one:)
This is the painting I submitted for the challenge:) Its an abstraction called 'Canal'

A bit messy but I'm experimenting.

 This month has been hectic and been a little hard to get some time to stop and do some painting. I can usually manage to squeeze it in but we've go so much happening and plus work...Looking forward to a calm April!
Take care! Tomorrow is Friday- yippee!

Your 'blues' piece is gorgeous! I've always loved the freshness and simplicity of blue and white together. Wonderful work!

I hope things slow down a little for you too.

Have a relaxing weekend,
