Garden Flag Samples

I was excited for the mail on Monday because I got my garden flag samples! These are the five designs I did for Premier Kites. I shared some of the work in progress on Facebook but the designs were embellished a bit more before printing. They look really nice on these flags. It's encouraging to see my work on real products. ;)

Kodi, Watercolor Dog Portrait

This is Kodi and she lives next door. I was out gardening on Saturday and she was looking all fluffy and cute so I grabbed a couple of quick pictures. I'm so glad I did, too, because when I was outside today, she yipped at me from the deck and I really don't blame her because she got scalped since we last met!

Amidst the Mustard Flowers Child's Watercolor Portrait

This is a little painting I did today for fun with my friends on Wetcanvas. It measures 7 x 11 and took two hours to paint. Watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press. This is the third portrait I've done in the last couple of months where I feel my watercolor portrait style is really becoming comfortably me.
