Zoey, the Black Cat in Watercolor and Summertime

Cosmo and I enjoying the summer sunshine

a current work in progress, 11 by 14 watercolor
Zoey is 8 by 10 watercolor on paper, nearly finished 
Summertime is flying by, nearly through July already.  I have been painting and sketching all summer. So much harder for me to maintain a schedule though in the summer, one home from college, the other here and there, vacation, house repairs, I have little routine and this is hard on the Art Time.  

Keeping my focus on enjoying my kids while they are home, I know it won't be long before I miss them being in the house and eating ALL the food in the fridge :)

A quick summary in photos, finishing the black cat portrait, and waiting for the owners OK here, starting the horse and rider, and making very SLOW progress, and enjoying the time with the kids and animals as summer moves right along, How about you?

Golden Retriever in Watercolor

Thought I might share a few progress photos of this Golden Retriever profile painted in watercolor.
I have been doing my evening sketches on watercolor paper, and it gives me something to jump into when I have a few minutes of time to paint.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind work, a listening ear, an honest complement, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."~Leo Buscaglia 

My thought and painting for the day.
