It really is harder than I wanted it to be..getting back into watercolor that isn’t a card or from markers. But here is what is bothering me: Maybe I’ve just forgotten it’s been so long but maybe I need new supplies…sounds like an excuse…so I’ll just keep at it and hope for improvement…..soon. The water pump on the left is in my back yard. It doesn’t pump water, just for ‘yard’ art and there is a story here. A long time ago when we first started working in farming we toyed with the idea of having a composting toilet in our cabin. My sister gave the pump to me for Christmas one year and said anyone who didn’t care for indoor plumbing need a water pump. I love the old pump and it goes where we go. There is a picture of the real pump below. On the right is my rendition of the fabric on my grandmothers old sofa that is now in my house. It must have been pretty wild for the times. There is a picture of the fabric too. Do give this watercolor month ago. You’ll enjoy it even if it doesn’t turn up in the Louvre.

Those are so cool! I have never tried watercolors……I do have all my son’s art supplies that he needed for his college days at a graphic arts college….I am pretty sure he has some supplies for that!
My dad would be wondering if your hand pump is a Dempster…..he used to be the Dempster pump dealer in our area.
I have no idea but will check and see what I can find out.
I’ve only just found these. My ‘Reader’ didn’t update and it’s been a bit funny for days …. I had barely any blogs to look at. Suddenly this evening … it said that there were 35 MORE UPDATES …. and I’m now trying to plough through those!
Beverly … what you’ve painted is perfection. It’s Beverly … in watercolours. Where I can see her presence. I can see you in those paintings. I love them Both of them.
Don’t sell yourself short Bev. You have just lost a little confidence in your abilities. That confidence will come back the more you paint. Keep painting. Please keep painting. For only by doing it over and over will you become more comfortable again and things will just slip into place.
LOVE these little paintings. Well done. You clever, crafty, painter lady.
