|"Anticipation" watercolor on paper 23.5 x 32|
I have finished my painting, Yay!!! Trust me it wasn't easy this week since it was our first week of school everyday. Steven's going to half day pre-K, by the time I get everyone dressed out the door and Steven dropped off, Sam and I come home do a few things and it's time to go get Steven. I think this first week will be the hardest because we haven't gotten into a routine yet, but I'm sure we will.
I did manage to finish and because my wonderful Mother has a frame business I was able to place my order with her and have her mail me a frame. Check out her site
, she has terrific frames. She sent me the moldings and I just had to build it, it went really smoothly.
Also a tip for all of you watercolor artists--I found a copy store nearby that has a very large scanner. They have the scanner for scanning large architectural drawings but they also scan in my paintings. I learned about this when I work at an Architectural firm and they would have their design boards scanned in. It is a blessing. Sometimes the colors are a tad skewed but for the most part it is a terrific, high resolution copy. The above photo is a scanned image. Also they only charge me a couple of bucks, seriously, I am thrilled. You do have to stretch your paper because with their machine it has to be a flat piece of paper and not to thick, I don't paint on 300lb paper anyway so it's not an issue. They do scan the 260lb paper that I paint on.
Also want to send a big thank you to all of you that sent in a title for my painting. I really loved them all and plan on using several of them for a series that I'll be painting. My cousin Diane came up with the title "Anticipation" and I thought it was just perfect for this painting. Thank You, Diane:)
|see the jars on the left bottom--gives you an idea of the size|
Here is an image if my framed painting. And for fun an image with a couple actual jars sitting next to it so you can see the scale of the painting.
When I was talking to my Mom she said I like that your reflection is in one of the jars. I didn't know what she was talking about because I had gotten so engrossed in painting the shapes and colors I hadn't really looked at the painting from a distance. Anyway sure enough in the second jar from the right you can see an abstracted me taking a picture with the camera in front of my face. Pretty cool!
