Watercolor Beach Painting, Circle Dance 13087, Day 29 of the Leslie Saeta 30/30 challenge, ArtByte Collage Tutorial, Book of Poems, Dreams of the Turtle King by Denise Bossarte. Illustrated by Texas Contemporary Artist Nancy Standlee

Circle Dance 13087
11x10 watercolor, pen and ink
Bockingford Rough 140 lb paper, Nakimi Falcon pen, Lexington Gray Ink

My paintings are available on the Daily Paintworks gallery page HERE.

I have an ArtByte, an affordable collage tutorial available HERE.  

This painting is an illustration for a book of poems, Dreams of the Turtle King, written by Denise Bossarte that should be available on Amazon around the first of December, 2013.  Denise is a Texas photographer and a member of Artists of Texas. 
This is illustration No. 6 and I will have 18 more to do. I'm working on these each day, posting them on my Daily Paintworks Gallery and website and Facebook, sending them to Denise to be scanned, and when the illustrations are returned I will mat in a 14x11 mat and ship when sold, and allow 2 weeks for the painting to be mailed if you purchase. The first 5 are on the way to Houston to be scanned.

One more day for the 30/30 and are you planning a special post. I think I'll post the painting of the cover of the book of poems. Wonder what the image will be? 

 To see work by other artists who are following along with the 30/30 go to the Leslie Saeta blog. I have joined hundreds of other artists for this September painting challenge and we are trying to paint and post a painting each day. It doesn’t have to be a finished piece but some piece of art each day. On some of the larger commission pieces I have posted portions over a 3 day period. On the smaller pieces I can do one a day and to finish out the challenge I will be posting these watercolors.

Didn't recognize it as yours, but should have seen the skill and design and put two and two together. A good artist can paint anything with anything and you certainly do that, Nancy.

Thanks so much for the nice comment Julie. I haven't done watercolor in a long time except in my journals and this project has turned into a fun challenge and to painting some subjects I would not have chosen on my own. Seagulls yes but bulldozer tracks (a future one, no).. Painting the fruit stand in VA I was channeling with your wonderful fruit stand images. That is an future post also.
