Creative Monday (on a Wednesday) - new paintings

I've been a bad blogger, but I had a good excuse - my sister got married!  And the wedding was held at the most beautiful place imaginable.  It seriously was like out of a story book and we stayed right at the venue.  I have to tell you, New York state wins at fall.  This is the farm house we stayed in.  I will share more next week including the wedding invitation I designed.

After the wedding my family took the train to Washington D. C.  I was able to sneak away one and day and dash to the National Gallery of Art.  I've been there before so I knew right my favorites were located.  This is one of the my favorite Van Gogh paintings at this museum.  I actually went back to the National Gallery the next day after visiting the Newseum (amazing place!) because my younger son wanted to go and missed out the day before.  The rest of the family headed back to our hotel, so it was just to the two of us.  Special times.

I've been back almost a week, and finally I am getting back to my own creative work.  I picked up some claybord a couple weeks ago and broke it out yesterday.  It is a very interesting, absorbment surface.  I am experimenting with watercolor and so far I am loving it.  This is my second painting.  Now I just need to figure out the best way to varnish/seal these paintings.  

This landscape has been on my easel for a long time.  Today I finished it.  I can't remember what number I am on, but my goal is to do 50.  This painting will be available in my shop very soon!
