Abandoned on County 35

This painting is for the Watercolor Workshop September project - paint something abandoned...so I had a photo I took one evening of a house that has been abandoned which is located on a remote county road in Logan County and decided to paint that.  The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on Canson 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I'm Baaaack!!! The Final "Rusting Through Retirement"

Well, after 6 days in the hospital and several here at home recouperating from 2 blood clots in my left lung, I am finally back to painting...it has been WAY too long for my taste.  I am doing okay - taking a lot of meds and trying to regain my strength and my breath.
I worked on this painting yesterday and finished it this evening - finally.  Now  I want to frame it tomorrow so I can enter it in a show on Thursday - I'm pushing it pretty close, I know!  Wish me luck!
