I spent my 4th of July painting and lounging by the river. An excellent use of my time if I say so myself. Here is my final piece, which is for a show I am participating in in the fall. The theme - water.
And here it is next to the still life. The background is a summer dress slung over a computer monitor. Fun!
*Update 7-13-10 : I now realize why the painting came out better than I thought - it wasn't watercolor! I used acrylic paint instead of watercolors and diluted them. Just realized the mistake today. Am a bit disappointed actually, but perhaps I have learned a new technique at least.
