The gallery is having a theme show about trees next week. I remembered having painted this scene at Gleason's Cove a few years ago. I did it in acrylic then, and this one is watercolor. I finally got a little bigger--16x20. I soaked some watercolor paper and stapled it to some stretcher strips left from the old paintings I rolled up the other day. It had to dry overnight because of the humidity, but it was really fun to paint on. For the most part I managed to keep it clean and simple.
I'm going to have to hang it in the show just as it is because I have no glass to put over it, much less a frame. It's a rather unconventional way to do watercolor anyway, so why not
