It's hot outside here in New England and a great day to paint the ocean! Here is a painting I did in watercolor of the Ogunquit Coast.

I was looking through my photos today and found this one of me on the terrace at the Chateau La Napoule in France. I went there to study painting in 2007. It was a very rewarding experience that I will cherish all my life. I was surrounded by friends and it felt like we were one big family with one common goal which was to paint outside and become better artists. We had so much fun and still talk about it today!  Many happy memories!  Here I am on the terrace right on the Mediterranean sea.

Today I felt like practicing watercolors once again. It was so warm and sunny so I decided that if I cannot drive to the ocean today, I would at least paint it! This is a small study on paper.

Today is warm and sunny and whenever the weather is like that I love to play with my watercolors! It's been a long time since I experimented with this medium and I must say it's a challenge. That said I love a challenge and because I am painting just for me, not for any show, I am having a great time playing. Here's today's results.
