ART. The cow painting is now finished. This colorful piece is fun. The backlit cow turns away from the sunrise to look at us as though saying, "Good Moor-ning!"

LIFE. Several years back my son gifted me with a set of Dr. Ph. Martin liquid watercolor paints. The paints are stored in little bottles and the cap contains a dropper for filling your palette. Actually, you don't fill the well of a palette—you only place a drop or two or three and add water to dilute the paint to the strength or weakness that you want to use on your paper. The liquid paints are concentrated in the bottle.
I had not used these paints since right after they were given to me, so I decided I wanted to try them again. I am liking them much better this time. My artist son can capture the purest, brightest transparent pigments when he paints with the Dr. Ph. Martin liquid watercolors. I am not having such an easy time as he, but I can see that with practice I will become better with their application. So thank you again for the Dr. Ph. Martin paints, Sean!
