Happy New Year to you all.  I have started the year out with a major slump.  Very little painting and when I do paint I am  most unsatisfied with the results.  But they say that these down times are just our way of getting to a different level.  I wonder though, some of my levels have been sort of weird.  grumble grumble.  But here are a few of my attempts.  This one is called Community Room.  It has a story but I'll leave the interpretation up to you, and the other two are an exercise challenge sponsored by the Northstar Watercolor society. Here is a lot of bright color with a little dark and the next is the same painting reversed, a lot of dark to a little color.
