Project 365, Watercolor, Day #365

Happy New Years Eve!

I hope you are having a good day!  Here is my last watercolor for 2014, watercolor #365.


This represents my crazy love/obsession I guess for completing this project.  I have completed two years of 'Project 365', which is really hard to believe.   It has been very satisfying but also stressful.  In the process of completing each day, some days are easier than others, some I feel accomplished and some I just want to get done.  Making the effort though and completing each day, no matter the outcome, does feel good.  I am not sure if I will start again tomorrow, I'm thinking about it, but we'll see.  I think it is a nice challenge and everyone should check it out.

That's all for me, for this year.  Crazy.  Thanks for stopping by.  If you have been hanging around all year, thanks for always checking in.  Happy New Year to all.  I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2015!!  Peace.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #364

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #364.


A few more colors and some of my favorite uses of lines for tonight's painting.  It is kind of hard to believe there is only one more day left in this year.  I guess it is always hard to believe when the end of the year comes though.  It has been a crazy one when I think back about it.  That will be all for me tonight.  I am going to watch a movie with Hannah, the rest of the gang is not interested in it.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #362.



A really quick one tonight.  One thin brush and one color, and just a fun design.  We spent most of the day at Disneyland getting some nice pics of all the holiday decorations.  It was really pretty and I always  enjoy seeing all the decorations.  It's late, so that's all for me.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #360.


Real simple tonight but I like it more than the ones I spend some serious time on.  Funny how that works for me.  It was a nice relaxing day for us again.  I am trying to get to bed a little early tonight, since I haven't had a lot the past few nights.  That's all for me, thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Merry Christmas!

If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great day!  If you celebrate another holiday this season, I hope you also had a wonderful celebration!!

Here is my watercolor for day #359.



Santa's sleigh tonight, just a quick one.  We had a great day and it's always hard to have these ones end.  Everyone had a great time today and we had some great family time!  Hannah just went to bed, so I am the last one up.  She was holding on for as long as a she could, because she also didn't want it to end, so cute.  Well that's all for me.  I am very tired and just need to clean a few things up before be.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #354.  


Simple again tonight, although I am not loving this one.  The pen adds some detail but I guess I don't like the composition as much.  Are you tired of the color scheme yet?   I should probably change it up but for some reason I am still liking it.  That's all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #340.


I did the background and wanted to add something else but wasn't sure what to add.  I decided on the snowflakes.  They are not my favorite though.  It's one of those where I try to add more to things and then I end up not liking it.  I still like the background, I just think some of the little snowflakes need some help.  That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #335.


Here is my second painting for the night.  I did a cool wreath but then added a bow and did not like it anymore.  I try not to start over but the bow was just terrible and ruined the wreath.  I needed to start over but couldn't go back to the wreath tonight, so I decided on some trees.  That's all for me tonight.

I truly could not think of what to paint tonight.  I looked at the paper for a while and had to walk away and try again.  I still could not think of something, so I decided to just let the line do its thing.  This is what I have for you tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Another quick one tonight.  Hannah really likes this one, she said.  I spent most of the day outside decorating the house.  It took a while because of our new landscape and I needed to redesign the lights.  I think it came out pretty nice.  I will try and take a picture of it tomorrow when I finish.  That's all for me.  Have a great day tomorrow and see you then.

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #331

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day!!  We had a great day.  Lots of cooking still, but we did get to go down to the beach and hang out for a bit.  We took Seamus to dog beach and he had fun playing with new friends and fetching his ball from the ocean.  I think he had a nice day.

Here is my watercolor for day #331.


We finished dinner and then watched How to Train Your Dragon 2.  My father actually asked about it and Alyssa was so excited to watch it because it is one of her favorites.  We got done around 10 and I was just going to paint something quick because I am tired.  Alyssa asked if I was going to paint a dragon and I said I didn't have the time but she asked again and suggested just a part, so I couldn't say no.  Alyssa inspired my painting tonight and I have a part of 'toothless' eye and face.  

That's all for me.  I hope you had a great day and evening and got to relax a bit!  

Take care,
Kelly

A long busy day for me.  I have been decorating for Christmas since I got back.  It is a little early but most of the family wanted me to start November 1st.  My parents arrive tomorrow for a two week visit, so I was trying to get most of the decorating done.  I still have a bit to do, plus cleaning, but I guess I am never ready.  So that's all for me.  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Swirls and waves again tonight.  A blend of a few colors for these ones.  That's all for me.  I am so tired tonight.  I have been lifting and moving boxes again, putting a shelf together, and other nonsense.   It just takes all the energy right out of me.  : )  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #319.



Hannah and I made it home just fine.  It was a little iffy leaving Denver.  They had more snow and cold weather and had to de-ice the plain but we got off ok, just a little late.  We landed to 70 degrees in California, crazy.  Chris cooked dinner, which was great and we ate outside around our new fire pit.  That was my inspiration for tonight's painting.  It was very nice sitting around the fire, eating dinner and hanging with the whole family.  That's all for me.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #318.


A simple version of all the gorgeous evergreens we saw today.  We had a four + hour drive back to Denver today, through the Rocky Mountains.  It was so beautiful!!  I just wish when you took a photo it came out as beautiful as when you saw it.   We had a bit of bad weather, making me a little nervous but for the most it wasn't to bad.  It was so nice to be able to see all the beauty that Mother Nature has.  We are just relaxing now before our flight home.  That's all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

That's care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #317

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #317.


We had a long day of driving and a good portion of it was in the snow with some not so good road conditions.  The snow was my inspiration for my quick painting tonight.  I love the snow and its beauty,  I can just do without the bitter cold and driving conditions.  I know they go hand in hand though.  It took us about 4 1/2 hours to get to the first school from Denver.  It turns out that just by looking, Hannah could tell she didn't want to go there.  That's why we visit them, that's for sure.  It was another 2  1/2 hours to the next school.  We just arrived in that town and it already looks better than the last, so that's a plus.  The tour is tomorrow and we look forward to that, hopefully the snow won't put a damper on the tour.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #316

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #316.


I have a quick one but it is inspired by what we have been through today.  A long day of traveling and single digit temperatures.  We did our tour at Utah state university in 9 degree weather.  It makes it really hard to enjoy the campus at that temp but it was nice.  From there we had to hop a plane to Denver.  Our flight was cancelled but luckily we got on a stand by fight.  Denver got a crazy snow storm and many flights were delayed or cancelled.  So we got to our hotel finally got some dinner and are just back in our room.  It has been a long day but tomorrow will be even longer, so that will be all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly
