Monday Mornings are Fabulous! Inspiration quote for the day.
Phew! What a week I had. It was so packed each day that I did not have a chance to do one post for you all.
On Saturday, the Grand Opening day of our Artists Co-Op went great.
My husband helped me set up a canopy out front of the building with some tables and I sat and painted while customers came by, which was fun.
I was able to talk to them and get an idea of what many are looking for in their wall hangings and art.
There is such a wide variety that I can go many directions with my paintings and signs and never get bored!
I had bought the hanging basket of gorgeous petunias to hang on the eave of the co-op but I had to set up a photo shoot on my potting bench before taking them over.
Then I Waterlogued them.
I love how it turned out so I am sharing it with you with a lovely quote.
Today I have taxes to finish up (nothing like skating in at the end) and some signs to work on that have been ordered.
I also want to dig up and transplant some delphiniums too, but we shall see if I get to that.
It always seems I have more things on my ‘to do’ list than hours in the day.
Below is the link to a full size jpg of the photo above you can download and print if you wish.

Thanks for sharing that GREAT Waterlogued photo! I have been wondering what real artists think about that app. Do you think folks will buy less actual watercolor paintings because of it? What do your other artists friends think of it? I don’t have an i-phone, etc. so I got my neighbor to put it on her i-pad (I gave her $3). We have done a couple of photos with it. I hate to bother her with it when I want a photo done and I don’t get to experiment with it but it’s better than not having access to it at all. The developer said that they are not making it to be used on other platforms. I saw your post over at Metamorphosis Monday.
I doubt that the app will supplant the real thing and is used mostly, I feel, by DIY’ers who are playing with it. Some may try to print and sell them but they are still gorgeous and people make prints of their actual paintings all the time and sell them so I don’t see a real conflict. But who knows. 🙂 I am just having a great time with mine and I do them from my own photos.
My 7th grade home ec teacher told me “you learn something new every day,” and she was RIGHT. I’d never heard of waterloguing until this post! I think it’s fascinating and your potting bench with petunias turned out great! It truly looks like a watercolor painting – thanks for sharing!
I really enjoy viewing and reading your posts and website pages. They give me great inspiration. I love the water color hen in the instagram.
I am glad to be an inspiration, it is what I am here for. 🙂
