Abandoned

We have been on-the-go all day today - doctor appointment first for hubby then opposite direction to deliver paintings for judging into a show- then lunch - then pick up prescription at Wally world and then company for dinner - good friends so it was okay to serve them sloppy joes and they brought the potato salad. So - tonight I painted this little watercolor sketch of my favorite subject - a vintage truck. This is small - 4" x 6" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper! Oh - how I love to paint old trucks!!! It makes me happy!

Barb, this is joyful, indeed. I see you've been doing some great work while I was out of touch with my blog friends. I love your July Sunset - the sky is incredible. That's a neat little piece from the ballpark, too. The line work is very nice.
