finding my way

I'm still struggling with technique
but am discovering that simpler is better for me
the less fuss
the happier I am


simple

simpler

they are all beautiful but i esp like the last one, it flows and feels the most creative interpretation somehow.

Yvonne said...

Wow, Blogger hasn't been kicking me out of your comments anymore. Yeah! I love your simple painting also. Your photos show you love simple style too. It is very lovely.

Just gorgeous Kimmie and I agree the simplest method usually bears the sweetest results! Those paintings are wonderful!
Have a happy creative weekend.

You are SOOOOO talented. I don't know how to paint or draw and I am in awe.

Becca said...

I LOVE this Kimmie! You really inspire me with your watercolor art. I have been practicing!
Happy weekend!

The last one is my favorite too. I think perhaps because it looks like it just fell off the brush, rather than being touched up and added too until it felt "right". I like that look that makes it seems as though it was just one stroke per color. You are really getting good, Kimmie!

Sallyanne said...

Definitely! Your eye finds the heart and illumines it. Beautiful!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, Kimmie. These are ALL gorgeous. You don't look like you are struggling with technique. If I could even begin to draw or paint, I would be beyond ecstatic. Your art is adorable.

Looks to me like you have technique down pat from the simplest to the simple and all degrees in between. :) Have a wonderful day. Tammy

I have to agree....I love that last one the most. They are all fantastic but the last is very calming.
