Calendar pages & watercolor palettes~

My little mushroom brush is just as important as my paint brushes!
Keeps the wool dust, lint, strings... 
All that crazy stuff fling around my studio, off my palettes.

I leave my palettes open to air dry~
It may be a few days in between painting.
If I forget to put my palette covers on (always) they get dusty.
I brush out the wells, brush off the little dishes...

I rarely wash my palette...
With a touch of water those messy puddles are perfectly usable!

Calendar time~
As I finish each month, I tack them up. It gives me a little distance
from my paintings. Sometimes they need a little more work.
Sometimes I soften an area...

The wintry months are still to be painted.
I should paint January & February mid-summer, on hot days~
When the winter cold seems like a welcome thought!

Just a few more paintings to go and
Outside My Window for 2020 will be complete.
Each year is a little bit different.
Always filled with my favorite things & feathered friends who visit!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Friends!
Thank you for stopping by~

I love your art and your artistic ways. I would never know what to do with those beautiful paint puddles that you create such amazing art with. Love the window curtain “treatment”. Creative 2020 Bliss Dear...<3
