Sunday Sketches

There are only a few things I get to look forward to each week due to my heavy school schedule and Sunday Sketches is one of them.  Awwww...yes, I love each and every one of you!  Hee!  :)  With that said, WELCOME to another FABULOUS and FUN week of creativity!

Above is a new watercolor I painted earlier this afternoon.  It was inspired by an European tray with little, adorable beach houses on it - a precious gift I keep at my bedside next to my father's photo.

I wanted to create something a bit different than what I normally do and am more than happy with the results of this watercolor.  Now, I just need to find the proper matting and place it in my shop.  :)

Now, let me venture off to see what everyone else has been up to this past week. Happy SS!
