The Pond in Mid Summer Update 5

Fear factor

The Pond in Mid- Summer may be compet! I feel like I have been working on this for such a long time.. and I have.  What is interesting is the fear factor kicked in.  I was almost afraid to complete it as I really had no idea what to paint next!

Master procrastinator

I really think I have been dragging my heels with this.  Last week I completed "Rhodo Rhapsody", a transparent watercolour that I have been, for lack of a better word..savouring for the last, ummmm year!

So with completing a watercolor last week and completing this one this week, I think I have some blank canvas shock going on.  Until yesterday I honestly had absolutely no idea what to start next.  I almost never have this problem.  I am so full of ideas that I literally cannot sleep!

I perused almost all of my reference photos and you know, I kept coming back to blue hydrangeas.  Stay tuned. One in watercolour - full shee.  One in acrylic 36 x36.  And what can I do with oil.  I have a new project!

Can you spy the dragon fly?
