5" x 7" watercolor

This week I am revisiting Isle of Palms in South Carolina. This time I have painted the beach in color. The first one is itty bitty, and it's really cute. It may be my favorite one. It reminded me of a contest I always entered in high school. You could only do miniature pictures. It was a lot of fun to do. I plan on using these paintings in my master bathroom as soon as it is finished. We are currently and by saying we that would be mostly me, removing all of the lovely wallpaper. It is a big job and I LOATHE wallpaper. I also firmly believe that flowers belong in a vase or garden not on a wall. So off with their little floral heads. Hopefully I will have it done soon Did I say I LOATHE wallpaper?

I re-purposed some frames and mats that I already had. So once my bathroom is in it's finished state these will look great in there.

Steven got back in the act of painting this week. He painted a lovely watercolor for me for Valentine's day! He's so sweet!

  1. Carrie, I love them framed! Your bathroom will look great :-)

    I love that you got Steven involved in the wallpaper removal.

    Sweet Valentine painting from Steven!!!!

  2. I always look forward to seeing your next master piece. I enjoy seeing them as much as you do painting them! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

  3. I've been to Isle of Palms once - I love it there! Not hustly-bustly like some other beach areas. I think these pieces would look great in a bathroom. Good thing you have a little helper to assist in wallpaper removal!

    I gave you a Sunshine Award on my post today - check it out at
