Watercolor on 4″x 6″ paper

One of the things I like about art is that it can be done anytime, anywhere.  Below is the original photo I shot of our old property in Colorado over a decade ago, and I used it as the basis for the above watercolor painting last weekend.

When I was a teenager doing art, this watercolor would have driven me mad — as it doesn’t look exactly like the photograph, it’s not realistic enough.  And now?  Now I love being able to selectively edit an image and paint it however I wish.
