30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 8

"There's Something Fishy about this Pelican"  (watercolor)  11" x 11"  $125
Yesterday, I babysat my granddaughters all day, and so I didn't get a painting done till now.  Good thing I was one day ahead with this challenge.  Now, I have to play catch up!  My oldest granddaughter, Alex, is 4 1/2 years old, so she loves to do anything artistic with grandma.  I knew that I should be painting, so I talked her into painting a pelican with me.  She decided to make her pelican purple.  I sat in awe of her artwork!  So free, no worries, always loving everything that she did!  What a lesson it was for me to just take it all in!  I had the drawing from yesterday as my start today.  I decided to make it playful, like Alex was! I did another painting similar to this with my crazy ladies.  It's pictured below.  It sold right away! If you are interested in purchasing any of my paintings, just comment below.


  1. Karen! this pelican is brilliant! so different from (my perception) of your other paintings. I think it's really cool!!!

  2. Another fun one! Hang in there! Life goes on, getting harder to keep up for me, but I'm hanging in there!

  3. This is my favorite so far!!! Such a happy painting and I love that I didn't see the fish right away - it took a minute looking at it to realize that. Your are inspiring me!
