Abstract Watercolor Painting

To be honest, it's been a looong time since I've painted. It makes me a little bit sad that I don't regularly make time to bust out my watercolors and paint, but I have a lot of other creative outlets to keep me busy. My sister wants a couple of abstract paintings to hang in her room since she's redoing her space to make it feel a bit more adult. I decided that I'd paint them as part of her Christmas gifts. Here's a look at the first one. I'll probably keep the second more of a surprise for her. I can't wait to see them hung in her space!

It was a fairly cloudy day but other than a little graininess, I'm fairly happy with how these turned out. Kodak film captures greens and reds so well!

The Biltmore Estate

We had planned a trip to the Biltmore for the Spring so I could finally see the gardens. I've previously only been during Christmas time. Unfortunately, we opted not to stand outside in the pouring rain so we just have an excuse to visit yet again! We did get to see lots of beautiful blooms throughout the house, though! There were grand arrangements on every table and mantle. Our trip to the Biltmore didn't turn out exactly as planned but I'm glad that Alex was finally able to visit just the same!
