A Great Way to Relax.

I have begun a new way to relax and really enjoy painting. For the last 3 months I have been doing what I named "Impromptu Paintings". So far I have done 105 Paintings. I have sold several to my friends. What I do is-- Whenever I have some time, I take a half sheet of arches watercolor paper and sit down with my watercolors and just paint. Sometimes it is from my imagination, or a picture I have taken, or just wetting the paper and letting the colors flow. I recently invested in 249 tubes of Daniel Smith's watercolors. They were on special price and now I have so many colors to play with. Between doing this, I spend time making vedios. I try to put one on youtube every week. I feel it is a way to teach and I enjoy teaching. [which I cannot do now]. I hope that you will watch them and leave comments. IN November, I have an open house at a frame and art store. Hope I can sell some of these paintings--as I am keeping the price low. I also am putting some on artid. I just put a new video on youtube yesterday--hope you will look at it. Millie Gift Smith
