Leslie's 30in 30 challenge "Banned" work in progress

Hi Everyone,
"Banned" 18" x 24" work in progress watercolor by Carrie Waller

I'm participating in Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge again.  This time I have several competition pieces I'm working on so I won't be completing a painting a day but I will be posting my work in progress paintings each day.

My work in progress today is called "Banned".  That is the working  title.  I was out shopping for lightbulbs the other day and had the hardest time finding regular old incandescent bulbs.  My husband informed me that they won't be selling them in the U.S. anymore because they've been banned.  This made me want to paint them.  They are really beautiful.  Stay tuned for each day's post because the reflections and shadows cast are really quite beautiful.  It really feels like a dance.  Can't wait to show you more:)



  1. Looking forward to the progress pics. And, wishing you and yours every good thing in 2014.

  2. Dear Carrie - I can't wait to see them as well. Have a lovely New Year. I too will miss these light bulbs.

  3. Amazing to see them emerge as you progress slowly but deliberately... I have been staring at them for an hour now... You never fail to amaze me Carrie!
