Nan's Art Adventures

Join me while I explore watercolor and sketching! I'm new to this, having never thought of myself as "artistic"! (I'm having a blast, as I learn!)

30 years in dentistry lead to early retirement, to be my husband's caregiver. He passed away February 10th, 2008. I am thankful I found art then, as it continues to help me now.

This watercolor painting was done without a brush! It was our class project to make a painting without using a brush. I did most of this painting with a chop stick. It was amazing to see what I could do without my dagger-stripper!

Hi, Nancy,
We'll see if this works. Over time, I've tried to sign up as a blogger so I can leave comments, but think I've usually backed off due to the complications. Your blog site is so beautifully designed to showcase your remarkable artwork. I don't think you have to limit the pictures to your paintings, but can include photos as well. That way you don't have to paint faster and faster although you're already turning out an amazing amount of beautiful, beautiful work. I'm excited for you! Hi to Michael.

Nancy, I am so excited to see your artwork posted. This is just lovely and imagine, no brush! I am also looking forward to seeing you again and Jenn really wants to do the zoo. You will love colored pencils, they are alot easier to control than watercolors. I look forward to watching your blog grow!!
