Double Delight

watercolor 8x8 inches Click to Purchase I hadn't worked in watercolor in a while, so Wednesday night at my painting group I thought I'd tackle Carol Marine's DPW challenge: a rose. Yeah, try something really hard since I haven't done it in a while. My friend Martha told me it's a double delight after she served wine with bugs in it. She didn't mean to. What's a little extra protein? Double delight!
I've been framing to get ready for the LA County Fair. The Franken Frames Carol Marine mentioned are great. Looks like the cow wants out, though. Someday I'm going to build my own frames, but until then these work well. Also pictured, I'm using the "mirror trick" I learned from Roos' video. For an explanation, see the comments in yesterday's post.


  1. Beautiful rendition of "Double Delight". I use to have that rose in my garden years ago in Texas. Love your work in watercolor.

  2. The watercolor is beautiful. And, your work looks fabulous framed!

  3. This is a beautiful watercolor...doesn't look like it was at all hard for you. The framed paintings look wonderful, too. The cow is my favorite...had to laugh at your comment about her looking like she wanted out, lol! So happy to have found your blog and greatly enjoyed looking at your lovely work. Have a great day! :o)

  4. OMG I just found you ...your work is what I want to far!!! I wish you could be my teacher....I love Double selight roses and this is the best!!!
