Wishes come true

There is a coffee shop (Mill Town Java) near me that my family frequents often. The family that owns it has become dear to us. They had an old oak pub table that I just loved. I asked them to let me purchase it many times. They said they would think about it when they had a replacement. I use to call it my table! One summer about 3 years ago, I saw a similar table with a compass rose painted on the table top. If I could have thrown a fit and got that table, it would have been worth it. It was a very expensive table as things can be at the beach. A girl can always wish! One day at the coffee store my friend came up to me and said they had a replacement table and they were gifting the pub table to me. I almost had a good fit right there. I was so excited. I refinished the table and painted my own compass rose with Daler-Rowney FW inks. I love it and that family is going to join us at this table for dinner.

Finest Pick

Always amazed that the most beautiful flowers come from a seed in the dark. These flowers bloomed out of a plethora of paint! I used FW inks and they are notorious for mixing well together.

Last Nerve

Everyone has a last nerve. If we could only see the humor in it at the time, the release would be laughter. This is an FW acrylic ink pour using my hammer.

Trying some new techniques with my Daler-Rowney FW inks! I was so excited how well this turned out. I'm not much on camping, but I enjoy an outdoor fire under the stars.

The kind of quiet that washes your insides. I think this kind of quiet would be good for anyone, especially near the water. 
This is a 10 x 14 on watercolor paper using Daler-Rowney FW Acrylic Inks and System 3 Acrylic Inks.

I have yet to see a blue starfish except in my imagination. I named this one "Indigo" because I wanted to paint a navy blue starfish! Indigo is the name of the Daler Rowney FW Acrylic Ink I used and also the System 3 Acrylic Ink in Titanium White. I painted three starfish in three beachy colors.

Third Season

Who doesn't love the third season of the year with comfortable temperatures. Normal landscapes look picturesque with the riot of colors against clear blue skies. If I have painted one leaf, I have painted hundreds! My favorite, the FW inks, is the best way to paint fall leaves. This is painted with the new Daler Rowney System 3 Acrylic Inks.
