I’ve always wished that I could paint. I’ve taken lessons, and classes several times throughout my life trying to learn how. I never feel like I’ve made huge amounts of progress, but  I  keep trying…I broke out my watercolor paints over the last week in my on going attempt to get better.

I definitely need to get better at mixing colors!

More to come…



  1. I wonder if you try a vertical format for this, with just one bloom?

    • Oh, neat idea Melissa! My Agapantha’s are just starting to bud. I’ll try to isolate just one in portrait orientation and try that although I must confess that painting anything at all sounds daunting and makes my stomach quiver! But. I bought a new set of watercolors and want to use them so I’m up for the challenge. 🙂 Thank you for the idea!

      • I always tell my students to relax, have fun, and get absorbed in the process without worrying about the results. You already have a great eye, and that’s the biggest thing. I hope we keep seeing them? 🙂

  2. I think this is a lovely painting! I hope you continue with it. 🙂

    • Thank you! I will. You are an inspiration.

      • You’re very kind; thank you. Your photos will inspire me, I’m quite sure! I love following talented photographers, because often a photo will inspire a piece of artwork. Thanks for sharing your work here.

  3. Looks pretty darn good to me 🙂

  4. Bravo for nurturing your inner creative! Perhaps a Monet lives inside. I’ve always wanted to learn to draw and paint. Keep going Deborah!

    • Thank you so much Geo! I miss you so!! I’ve always thought I have an inner Monet, but it’s hidden…deeply hidden! Or I skipped the talent dole out on that day for a shopping or nature excursion instead so know I should have it and feel it missing acutely! 🙂
