I liked how the sun was shining on all these little yellow houses, making them even brighter than they are already. And I couldn't wait to paint those big dark trees above, which just a few of their branches catching the morning sunlight.

I loved how bright this grass was in the sun this morning. I also liked the bright blue of the boat cover next to it...but I couldn't get it as bright as it actually was, even though I have probably 7 different blues to work with.

This painting reminds me of my childhood :) It's the entrance to the beach we would (and still do) always go to.

I painted this from a photo I took one morning on our way to class. It felt like at least a 2 mile walk and we were all jet lagged, so taking random pictures was a great way to stay alert :) And as I've now realized, pictures taken in the early morning are the best!
