Taffy Spill

"Taffy Spill" 12" x 16" watercolor
Taffy always reminds me of my wife's Grandma who simply loved salt water taffy. This painting was inspired by Jelaine Faunce's "Color Therapy" series. I loved the whole idea and the paintings she came up with.
For my therapy, I decided to paint with a lot of blue, now blue isn't my favorite color but the combination of blue and green (not turquoise) is! I love it! I enjoyed painting glass again and since I hadn't painted colored glass before, I truly enjoyed the challenge.

The dog ate my homework!

So, this is what's left of a full sheet painting after Angel, our new-ish pup decided to chew on it. They are both about 9"x13" or so, I haven't had the courage to really measure! In a way, I like them better this way but dang! that was a full sheet painting!, and I thought baby proofing days were over long ago!

She also chewed up a full sheet portrait I've been working on which will now be smaller close up. I am working hard on finishing some new paintings so stay tuned! Thanks for visiting every once in a while.
