Painting 25 - Goose Family Robinson


Does anyone remember Swiss Family Robinson? I so wanted that tree house! It must've been incredible to be the set designer of the movie. I have a fantasy that someday I'll have an art studio tree house... Meanwhile I plod along in my subterranean studio space instead.

Arrgh! Since I'm thinking of childhood movies, I could throw a childhood temper tantrum right now. I'm all stressed out at work, then I come home and the painting doesn't go well. STILL having problems with the masking fluid affecting the paper. This is the sort of thing that makes me wonder why the heck I am struggling with watercolor instead of using acrylic or colored pencil which is so much easier to control and correct. It's too late at night to eat a hot fudge sundae, so I have to figure out some other way to calm down. Breathe...Breathe... must find my Happy Place...

I love this painting.......it's so sweet--understated and gorgeous. Yes....I wanted to live there too. I loved that movie! (I've been swamped for the past couple of weeks and am trying to catch up visiting my favorite blogs.....)

I wanted that tree house too! Can totally relate. As to the breathing, been there too. I hate masking fluid. I'd rather save my whites or lift out the whites later.
