Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

Blue cloth

This was a challenge from Rookie Painter. And it WAS a challenge. Reflections are challenging, and so this was.
Watercolor, 5X8

The kettle got out of hand in trying to fix things. I may try to pick up some paint and see if I can make it a bit better. There was a certain lack of preparation involved. Or not involved? Anyway, if you are looking for something challenging, check out the link!
Hmm, I need to try this again. And again, and again. Reflections, grrr.


  1. Hi Dianne! I had the same problem with the kettle. Trying to fix it and made it wors. My first attempt was thrown away beause of that! But I must say your cloth, the apple and especialy the book are very well done! And not to forget the chain! I do like the whole picture! And at least you did it!!!

    1. Thanks Renate! The middle part of the chain sort of got lost in the shadows somewhere. It's a learning experience.

  2. Hi Dianne, beautiful version indeed, one of the best I have seen. Ciao!

    1. Grazie Tito! Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoy visiting yours too, and seeing your work.
