Photos of the Week

These are actually last weeks photos, but who's counting?  I had to have some time to process all of these since getting back from the Grand Tetons in Wyoming.  And.... I had an insane amount of laundry and sleep to catch up on- so here ya go!

Even though my energy fizzled out on me halfway through this trip, it was the best thing for me. Being out in beautiful nature exploring the wonders of the world.  If I can do this for the rest of my life I will be a happy woman :)

Painting Abstracts

Abstract Landscape Watercolor Paintings, Ocean and Sky, by Elise Engh: Grow Creative

I don't know why I don't paint more abstracts.  I always have fun when I do!

Lately, I'm into abstracts that sort of look like landscapes, like these that remind me of the ocean and sky.  I had those in mind while painting :)

What kind of abstracts do like to paint?  Do they have a resemblance to anything or is it just pure colors and forms?
