getting serious about loosening up

Watercolor on gessoed watercolor paper. My daughter, Kajsa, went to Yellowstone this summer and took several photographs of the wildlife - I painted this once and it was stiff and awful so I tried again and this time it turned out much more like what I was aiming for -  I have never painted on gessoed paper before but it sure helped me to keep it loose - 8x10 -

Hello! I haven't come to see your blog for a long time! I love what you did with this painting, the texture with the gesso looks incredible. It gives a great energy!
Great work with the painting in the post below, it's dreamy and beautiful!
I'm glad to see your paintings again, not so glad to read that you've been diagnosed with a cancer. I'm crossing my fingers for it to go away!
Hope to see your paintings more regularly (but I'm not very good for posting, myself, these days...)
