DAY 25 - Overwhelmed

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. Between this challenge, a challenge on Facebook to share 3 paintings a day, opening a Pinterest account, starting my bedding plants AND do all the normal household things that have to be done, I wonder how I will get to everything. It took over an hour this morning just to go through my emails, and my google+ and Facebook notifications. Oh well, some things will be finished in a week!

Valley Grapes
I managed to put this piece together last night while I was getting dinner ready. It is, once again, a mixture of Oriental style and my normal style. I used a mystery paper which offers a bit more blending capabilities than rice paper but not the same control as watercolor paper. All in all an interesting experiment.

'Valley Grapes' is a 7.5 x 9 unframed watercolor based on one of my photos taken at a local vineyard.

Enjoy the art and have a great Sunday! - I am going to play with my flower sprouts!
