Lots of Love in Vancouver

I've been in Vancouver or the past three weeks  savouring every wonderful moment with my two grandsons. Yes two.  Everett arrived a few days after I arrived.  I naively thought I would be able to catch up with the 30 Paintings in 30 Day Challenge. And as much as I would like to share with you that I was able.  Well I was not.  However snuggles and storybooks trump painting for awhile!

I have managed to complete five small paintings during this time.  I painted some daisy and then figured it would work well as a poured painting.  So I redid it.  Both are below - which is your preference - the traditional approach...

Daisy Days I

...or the poured painting?

Daisy Days II - Poured Painting

And then I thought I should do it once more as a negative painting.  Have not had the chance to do this but I may.  I think it is a good opportunity to illustrate the versatility of watercolour.

I brought along my iPad thinking I would-be able to blog during my visit.  However my iPad did not recover from me dropping in on its corner last month.  I had the glass replaced (subsequently voided the warranty - but that is another story) but the touch screen was acting up frustratingly so.  Anyway I just managed to get my technology in order just two days before I was to travel back home.  I am a complete Apple fan after this experience!
