It's been quite a while since I have posted here.  I must admit, most of my blogging has been taking place over at my website.  But I did want to update my work here as well, to share a bit of my latest creative endeavors.  Above are three recent watercolors.  I've experimenting a bit with some new colors and techniques and, I must admit, am quite pleased with where this is taking me so far.  

Venice has been a favorite subject for some time, but I can never tire of seeing it and painting it in new ways. Some thoughts of Venice can be seen in my diary here.

The cloister in Monreale is a new subject for me, and I've enjoyed painting the intricacies and details of the beautiful capital.  My reflections on this can be seen in my diary here.

I am also excited to say that I have opened up two new online shops.  One on my website here.  The other, for smaller prints, on Etsy here.  If you are interested in making a purchase on my website, please do use coupon code HOLIDAY15%4U (valid through next weekend).

I hope you are enjoying the start of the holiday season and wishing you enjoy your weekend.

I love the way you combine tightly drawn detail with lovely loose passages. Always a pleasure to view your work.

Hello Mick,

Thanks so much for your kind words and for that observation. Detail and loose passages is definitely the direction my work is going in, more and more. Hope all is going well in your creative corner-I will have to stop by your blog and see what you have been up to.

Happy painting
Sophia
