Susan't Porch...watercolor

"Susan's Porch," 8 x 10 watercolor, matted for 11 by 14
"Is that for us?" I hear often from my wife when completing a painting. "No, it's for sale," is the reply.
"When do I get one?" asks Susan again. "I want some Oklahoma red dirt and fluffy clouds."
So here it is, Not for Sale, "Susan's Porch." Yes, there she is on the porch, looking at the clouds.
Unless of course I can do a one she likes better,  with fluffier clouds. Then this will be renamed, and for sale.

  1. I love this post. When my parents retired my mother started painting after never painted before. She always said that she had pictures in head that she needed to paint. At first it was kind of rough but as she took lessons and got experience she got quite good and my Dad would as her the same thing Susan asks you, "When do I get one?".
