This church is in Cades Cove TN. I was inspired to try this painting after a family trip with the in-laws. My wife, Kristy, and my coach/mentor/teacher/friend Craig Todd keep me motivated to learn and encourage me to keep painting.

Title or Location: Advance, North Carolina
Like many others, I had began watercolor painting at the start of covid. I am a stay at home wife and mother, and I needed an escape from the real world. Through days and weeks of searching YouTube painting videos, I had finally found "the one". My favorite watercolor artist, Louise De Masi. She's based out of Australia. This painting of a pansy was a tutorial of hers, and it was my first time painting it. I enjoy painting my subjects multiple times, I feel I learn so much by doing it. The only

I almost threw this away. Sometimes I have a hard time "pushing through" a painting that I am doing. I'm tempted to stop and say "this is not good, I won't finish it, it's awful". I painted the sky background a year ago and the painting just sat in a corner. One day I decided to just "play" with this piece of paper and I loved what happened! Quite often I find that I need to let my artwork just cook in a corner. Every once in a while I surprise myself!

I use my small watercolor kit to document the places I experience while traveling and working on tje road. I was able to spend most of the winter in Arizona, spending time in the unique Sonoran desert. Where each saguaro cacti has its own personality within the Sonoran's surreal landscape.

After I had joint replacement surgery on my left thumb, my dominant hand, I still wanted to paint. I thought that I'd just play with color using my right hand to wield the brush. To my amazement, I painted with more spontaneity and with a looseness I've been trying to achieve before. Maybe I'm ambidextrous and have only just discovered it (I'm 76).

Title or Location: Twilight in Penarth
I used to live in Penarth, and find it an interesting town by the sea, with lovely shopping, eclectic coffee shops, parks, and of course the wonderful pier. I am also fascinated by the wonderful lamps in Britain and beyond, their history and intricate designs. Hence this lovely lamp, taken from its neighbours, to stand proud and alone, but with the outline of the pier behind to illustrate its context of Penarth.
