The Avocado was my first watercolor painting ever (I don't count kindergarten lol). I was wanting to put some art in my kitchen, fruit seemed logical and something I've never drawn.
Done on a 4x6 Strathmore Post Card. I was told if I wanted to buy anymore art supplies I had to take some art up to show, they'd been asking to see for a few months (I'm my worst critic, that was pressure).
In the end my fiance knew what he doing, more faith than I but I came home with news the ballerina acrylic painting was going to go on exhibit in a local gallery and to start work on a series for a exhibition they'd host for me. And to also do a series on the fruit which will be framed in a window style and up for sale. The series of 4 is done now.
Now I have some hope, I wasn't told "Lady, please for our eyes sake, put down the brushes and pencils" hehe. Like I said I'm my worst critic.
