Paint Party Friday!

It’s Paint Party Friday again! If you aren’t participating, you should be. It’s a great motivator to actually get something painted during the week and it’s fun to surf around and see what everyone has been working on. It doesn’t have to be a big painting and it doesn’t even have to be finished. This week, I have a little watercolor sketch in my sketch journal. I can find time to work in my little sketchbook even when I can’t focus on starting a new canvas or a real watercolor. This is the front porch of the General Store in the nearby town of Covington, LA. I love the look of that old red and white gas pump with the blue shutters. And how many businesses have a front porch with a swing?

I finished and mailed my Helping Hand for Japan for the auction, too. I’ll show that on Monday. Gotta get some breakfast now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is great and would be a wonderful full sized painting! How quaint the little town must be. I agree that PPF is a great way to stay motivated! It’s “making” me create and I love it! Happy PPF!

    I love this painting, it has a very homey feel to it. A scene from the past when things were so much more relaxing.

    Wishing for warmer summer months when looking at this painting.
    Luv the reflection on the window and the old barber post is a little nostalgic note in your picture story.

    Beautiful work!

    Happy Easter : )

    Lovely and quaint. I bet the folks that work there know their customers by name and are friendly and cheerful whenever anyone pops in. Nice job!
