Abstract Watercolor Landscapes

Hi there! During this busy and crazy time, I have tried really hard to still find time for doing things I love.  As you probably know, painting with watercolors is one of those things that I can't do without! 

I've mostly been doing abstract paintings.  Abstract work has a way of soothing me and helping me let things go. Here are the two abstract watercolor landscapes that I created!

New Abstract Watercolor Paintings

Hello friends! How has quarantine been going? 

I've had my ups and downs with it.  The upside is seeing a whole lot more of my kids and husband and connecting in ways we wouldn't have otherwise.  The downside is that life is actually more busy than normal.  Distance learning with an 11 year old is more challenging than I anticipated.  Some days my son's teacher gives out 5-6 hours worth of work online and that's too much time on a screen for my kid.  This week we've been prioritizing his work so we don't finish everything, but get the most important stuff done.  That's working out much better for us!
