A sometime dabbler in watercolors

It has been a long, long time since I painted. I painted quite a lot for years, then lost momentum, and just haven't gotten back into it. I recently looked at a briefcase full of them that I had stashed and feel I would paint differently these days. I'm not the same person I was then. I do have some miniature paintings of birds that I like though, and a watercolor of a lady.

When I painted I signed them Rainey as that is my nickname.

This is a quail.

This is pretty close to the actual size of it.

I just held the painting up to my monitor and this picture here is just a tad longer.

This next one is a close-up, so you can see the details.

Here is the lady. She is 2 1/2" wide by 3 1/4" tall.

Like I said, I'm a sometime dabbler in watercolors. Maybe I'll get out my paper and watercolors again, who knows. I have so many things I'm doing. Working part-time, home-caring, gardening, and other handiwork for my little shop. I have to be in the mood to paint. Starting out with a blank piece of paper is intimidating.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for giving me a better look at the painting. I'm still astonished at your talent to paint these diminutive little treasures!

Good morning Thrifty Countrywoman. Thank you for your kind comment. I will let you know if I put any of the bird paintings on Etsy.

Have a great day ~ FlowerLady
