This Old Barn

This is a departure from my usual painting techniques. Instead of taking weeks, this watercolor only took a couple of days. It was fun to do and a bit scary. Pouring color and spritzing with water leaves a lot to chance, then finding shapes in the mess is a challenge.  It was a fun exercise and I'd like to do enough of it to get better.

About Susan Harper

Hmm, bio:  Let's see.  I've lived a considerable time, so it's hard to know where to begin.  I'm originally from San Francisco, married, raised four kids, have 8 grand kids, still married to the same sweet baboo living on the North West coast of California near Humboldt State U.  I've done some kind of art work all my life, but didn't start to paint until late 2007.  Artists often comment on how hard watercolor is, so I thought, "What the heck. How about I take the challenge".  And whaddya know!  Who woulda  thunk it?  I took to watercolor like a duck takes to, uh, water.  So, as a senior citizen  I'm just beginning a new career. To tell you the truth, I never set out to sell any paintings, just to learn.  That all happened in spite of me.  Now I often don't have anything to put up for sale, because I do commission work and it's gone before it's painted.  I'm hoping to get some inventory built up, but my style of painting requires a good deal of time.
