Time Flies...

...When You're Having Fun...
And, that is exactly what The Summer Of Color has been!

Summer of Color (Week 6)
"Watermelon Ice"

I would like to offer a great big 'Thank You' to Kristin from Twinkle,Twinkle for hosting such a cool event (pun intended, of course)!  I have thoroughly enjoyed the ice cream inspiration, and can't believe how quickly six weeks flew by!

Six Weeks, Six Crazy-Haired Girls!

And, just in case you were wondering, I am still up to date with Daisy Yellow's Index Card A Day Challenge.  Here are the latest...

I have discovered that index cards are a great, no-pressure way to try out new techniques on a small scale.  (I have a feeling there will be more cards in my future beyond the challenge!)


  1. What a lot of fun the girl at the top is. You have such a wonderful way of making the challenge even more appealing. Fantastic! I love the idea of index cards too. I missed this challenge, is it still going? ManonX

  25. Sorry, that should have read 'ice cream lady'.

  26. Love the gnome and the ice heads! So coool :-) Your french fry gave me a craving!!!

  27. I dont even know where to start with the compliments, first of all the colors you have in your watercolors are fantastic and vibrant. The thank god its fry day made me smile wide, and the paintings in the beginning including the ice dream cone haired woman that is first. They remind me of summer and I absolutely love them thank you for sharing.

    1. I meant ice cream cone, but got caught up in how dreamy they were excuse my poor spelling

  28. Absolutely love your watermelon summer of color piece!
