My current contract work leaves me little time and energy to pursue my own art these days. After 4 months, I found some inspiration over the Labor Day weekend to set up a small palette of watercolors and create a painting. Nothing compares to the peace and contentment I receive from painting and drawing. The top photo is the finished still life of green apples. The bottom one is a close-up that I flipped in Photoshop to check for balance in my composition.
