Farm Scenes 2023 Calendar

Every year I pick a theme for my calendars. 
A friend asked why I didn't do one with Farm equipment 
so I took his advice and this one is named 'Farm Scenes.'  
These are all sketches from scenes I have seen and photographed. 
The very last one is actually a painting, but the the rest are watercolor sketches.
The wall calendar is $21 and the desk calendar is $15.  
If you are interested you can use pay pal, venmo or check.  
This will cover the shipping and tax (if you are in Texas)
my venmo address is: @Suzy-Powell-1

Cheap Joes 2023 Catalog

 This is a painting of a friend 'Claudia' who is known as the hat lady.  She was standing in the sun and the wind was blowing and I had to take a photo! She was a wonderful muse!

Cheap Joes Online workshop

 I taught a 3 day workshop for Cheap Joe's Art Stuff. Online using Zoom.  It is hard to teach using a computer because there is no 'hands on' help.  They sent their paintings to me and I helped them as much as possible via email as well as on screen share.  They did a great job considering they were alone just watching!  The first day we did 'Julian' with the crazy hair, the second day the lipstick girl, and the last Big glasses.  

I will be teaching for them again in March and September.  March will be the 'Joy of sketchbooks' and in September, portraits again. We will do some different people and some different techniques.  You can go to Cheap Joes Art Stuff and then online workshops and sign up if you want to join in.

30 Day Watercolor Portrait Challenge

 I finally finished the 30 day paintings. It was fun. There were a couple that I didn't 

 like but I painted anyway.  I learned a lot.  The challenges are always good to help be inspired or making a commitment to practice more.  

One was done using tea as a back ground. One was used using a straw to spread the paint. One was done with out a drawing, etc. Each painting had something different.
