Rubber Ducky and Friends

My eyes are getting heavy as I sit cozied on my comfy little, sofa tonight.  It's been a strange day and one of "testing" it seems. I've been trying to focus on overcoming a specific mindset and it seems the more I challenge myself to do so, the harder it becomes.  Grr Every feel that way?  One thing I do know, strength is not gained by giving up, so I will continue to persevere.  Uh huh.

On another note, I worked a little more on the caricature for my friend and it's coming along quite well.  I started the watercolour above, while allowing part of the other WIP to dry.  I had so much fun doing this one and am starting to feel that my best watercolours are when they're strictly free hand. (As this one is above.) Meaning no pre-drawn lines to follow.  I just pick up my brush and begin to paint.

Pick a fishie or duckie and squeak away!  :D


  1. smiles. i like your fishie...and nice blend of colors sophia

  2. Beautiful fishies and duckies... I think your "go with the flow of the watercolors" paintings are great.

    Wishing you strength to meet whatever challenges you face :)


  3. The colors used here are really nice Sophia!

  4. i like these little fish...and the rubber duckie! have a great day! xo

  5. Adorable. The first fishies I like ever! Darling girl, perseverance means accepting a mindset for a time being too. Not fighting it, but saying: ok, that is it how i feel now. It will pass. I will take up growing tomorrow morning again, for today I have done all I could.
    Trying to do all is like wanting to be perfect and therefore missing the opportunity to be great! Love you

  6. You are such a strong person and I admire you. You are has a sweetness about it that can make me smile. Hugs my friend, Wanda
