Weekend work

`
'
I painted several paintings on Saturday and I will post them during this week because I have to stop painting now to make name tags for our 40 yr high school reunion this Saturday up in West Point, GA.
Ok, you know how old I am now. And the good thing is, everybody there will be my age too! I have put this task off until this week. We only had 35 in my graduating class but we have invited other classes so I have about 50 or so to do.  I will post my senior pic later this week. I have to scan them all from the annual. Very time consuming but with lots of awwwws...when I am doing it. We were all so young and perky then!

When I painted these I told myself these were my "just paint fast because it's only paper and you are just practicing and it really doesn't matter because you can always gesso over it" series. Well, the "it doesn't matter part" I am still struggling with. These are just on gessoed watercolor paper. Practicing for the big ones.
