Watercolor Home




Sarah and our group of artists continues to be such a great source of inspiration. This page is Day 12 of our Soul Journal journey together. Sarah has been kind enough to link the other artists who are working on this to her site, so we can visit with each other.


The top page is a simple representation of a home where you felt safe and secure with the rest being the outside world. The neutral tone paper with the floral print is actually a pocket. Then collage and watercolor. I added some pearl paint to the clouds which is hard to see in the photo. More to add today. Join in the fun if you like at Soul Journal.

It is so fun to see what everyone is doing and to feel the kindered spirits at work. I will continue for ever and ever to be amazed at how each person approaches each task differently. And how much I can learn everyday even though I know how paint works.

I love these. I am excited you are trying new things and having so much fun with it. You are a great role model. If things ever slow down( probably in the fall when the kids are back in school) I plan on coming back to these lessons you are posting, and trying each and every one. I think todays is one of my favorites.

Loved that pocket - isn't it great how Sarah gives us the prompts, but then how everyone interprets them is what makes them their own. Yours has great style and bold confidence - super! Jane

Sarah Whitmire said...

Oh I LOVE your style! The small details like the lamp and shades really make your houses something special.
