Watercolor Eiffel Tower

Paris Effiel Tower

As a watercolor artist and I am still a beginner, this was a dream for me to watercolor! I really wanted to do this one. I did this with pen, watercolor and finished the Eiffel Tower in Gold Acrylic.

 

I plan on putting this on some postcards, greeting cards, tissue paper at my Zazzle.com/daphsam shop.

Watercolor Easter Bunny During Coronavirus

blueEaster Bunny

 

The new reality for at least right now. The importance of wearing a facemask so the Coronavirus doesn’t spread. Years from now, when I look back at my art work, I really hope that this was just a once in a lifetime event. I guess we will see how this plays out. Will I be painting a Santa with a face-mask too? Time will tell.

Happy Easter!

Island- Word Of The Day Challenge

Palmtrees sunset

Watercolor by Daphsam

Palm trees swaying in the sunset evening on the little island of Forget-me-not. The cool sand dances between my toes, as I walk towards the ocean. The ocean waves lull my heart into a peaceful beat.  On the island of Forget me not, I spend my days relaxing and watching the simplicity of the palm trees just be.

My thoughts of a busy, crazy life are not allowed here. The island is reminding me, to just be. Take the simplicity of ocean waves, sandy beaches, palm trees, colorful skies and soak it in. On the island, life is taken day by day, minute by minute.  Go to the island to quiet your mind. Let yourself get lost into the moment. Look down at your toes and see the sand covering your feet. You are here, in the now.

Don’t forget about the island of Forget-me-not.

“Simplicity” Of The Days

The simplicity of taking a walk and watching the Mallard Ducks swimming with no care in the world.

How about just watching the sunlight highlighting the fence and greenery.  Just sitting there and watching the play of light, the peacefulness.IMG_E7810

Just spending the time to watercolor and take pictures of my art. The simplicity of finding cupcakes photos and watercoloring them.  Enjoying the simplicity of those activities.
