September Watercolors

 


As the pandemic deepens, moods do too, making art of any kind more important to survival.

But it also slows you down, and this September, I only managed 10 watercolors, three of them 5 x 7 birthday and greeting cards. Still though, there were 16 posts, the most since 2014 for the month, and third highest since 2009.

The best, and largest painting, was the Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico, a commissioned piece. 

Viewing them again, they bring me peace and inspiration for this month. Enjoy and turn on the volume of this my fourth slide show of paintings since March 15. There is an overriding theme though, of an autumn journey. The last one is titled, "Alone."
