Observations


I am still enjoying this watercolor kick I have been on lately. Watercolor is so airy and fresh looking. Not to mention the easy (no) clean-up. It is perfect for the mood I have been in lately. This painting, called "Spring Fling" has just been listed on my etsy site for sale. If you are interested, hop over and take a look by clicking here.

I have been visited by jackrabbits in our back yard lately. It is hard to get a good photo of one, since they are fast and scare easily. Despite this, I feel compelled to try. The dog and I stand side by side (well, I squat, since I like to be at his level), looking out the window at the rabbits. I, with my trusty little camera, and he, with his wet black nose. What a pair we are!

I am happy to announce that I have just surpassed 5,000 visitors on this blog!!! Granted, I did not begin counting when I first began posting, but since I got a counter I have been amazed to watch the numbers go up. I never would have believed I would have over 5,000 visitors! So thanks, to all of you who regularly read my blog, and to those of you who only stop in every now and then. I appreciate it.

Hey sweetie...your new watercolors are really FABU. I love the geometric shapes in this one.

Maisie would love to stop by and meet some of those jack rabbits too. She is the most bunny obsessive dog I've ever known!

We had four of the little guys in our front yard this morning. You're right about them spooking though. As soon as I try to open the door to get a good shot....they're off!

Hi Karine,
I found you on Twitter and hopped over here to get to know ya... nice work, fun blog... where did you live in Colorado? I'm in Winter Park. I've often thought about spending time in the desert (especially during mud season). I'll be following you and on Twitter to live vicariously through you.

My best,
Kate
