100 Watercolors #45 - Illusion

I looked through all of the themes today, and was surprised to find that this was the first painting I have done with a beaver in it!  Hopefully it will not be my last, because I think beavers are just about the funniest animals around.

I am a day behind in posting (on my self-imposed schedule) because I have been working on some other illustration work, which I hope to be able to post on here soon.

Next week's theme: Family!

100 Watercolors #44 - Two Roads

I'm not sure my painting for this week's theme totally makes sense...

Technically, a möbius strip only has one side, but I thought there was a cool interplay here between the car and the bike, and how they are kind of on two different roads, but they are also sharing the road....  I guess what I really want to say is: if you ride a bike, you should wear a helmet!

100 Watercolors #43 - Dying

The image for this week's theme is sad but true.

I grew up in the pacific northwest and saw many beautiful green forests that were turned into desolate, clear-cut wastelands.  It's important to think about where your paper comes from!  This is why I am a total psycho when it comes to reusing every square inch of both sides of every sheet of paper that crosses my path before I recycle it.  Also, try to buy products that utilize recycled paper!  Especially toilet paper.  Okay, that's my little PSA for this week.

100 Watercolors #42 - Standing Still

I am a bit under the weather this week, and have some looming deadlines, so I'll keep this short.  Here is my painting for this week's theme.
