The garden

I have decided I want to do a watercolor journal of my garden.
It is one of my favorite places to spend time. I have been taking
a lot of photos but want to also express the "feel" of it through
water color.
This is one of the last of the Morning Glory blooms for this season.
For some reason I have not had the best of luck with getting them to
grow in the last few years. Perhaps it is the location.
Hope you enjoy this little flower as much as I had doing it.

Class 5 painting

I had a lot of fun with this piece. My little tiger cat, Myne, loves cantaloupe and makes a little pig out of herself whenever I serve it. I had some difficulty with the shading of the cantaloupe, although it does look better than the scan portrays it. Myne's name frames the edges to make up the border and I attempted to make the cloth behind the plate look like it had cat claws. Just a fun piece which will always remind me of my funny little cat that loves fruit.
