|"Bottled at the Source" original watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller|
I trust that you are having a wonderful summer! It is hot, hot, hot here, and I think most places in the U.S. We are in a severe drought and in dire need of some rain so I guess the Cook/Waller challenge this month is timely. Crystal came up with the theme of water. Now, confession time, this challenge was due a while ago but yours truly has been crazy busy. I think Crystal has been pretty busy also with commissions and summer with the kids. But I have finally gotten my act together and created my first painting in our new home. I took the photo reference for this at our old home in Alabama. I set these water bottles up pool side. I loved the contrast of the abstractness of the bottle against the abstractness of the pool. And I love, love, love blue and turquoise, so this painting was right up my alley. I did change quite a bit from the photo reference.
Check Wednesday for the Work in progress pictures of this painting.
