Happy Pool Day!

Happy Pool Day!, originally uploaded by mmvgonzales.

I'm running into several photos of feet in the pool this holiday weekend. I thought I'd post a 10 year old watercolor I have hanging in my family room. I did this for a class assignment when taking a watercolor class. It has remained my favorite painting to date.
Hope you are all safe, enjoying family and friends and keeping cool! Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July
Last year's painted toes!  And I spent it at work...not this year!!!! Yippi!!!!

    Gosh, it's so refreshing coming to your blog! You've been busy and I've missed quite a lot.... love the toes! and the dream sequence and your day lily --what a wonderful poem and way to remember.
    Happy 4th to you too.

  2. I suddenly have this incredible urge to go put my feet in the water. Great painting! I hope you're having a relaxing fourth of July, Marta!

    That painting in the pool is awesome. Gosh, all those reflections and refractions of light. I'm glad you framed it!
    Sounds like you are getting back to enjoying life more. That's great.

    Such a good painting, Marta. Inspiring and full of the joy of the day. Do more of these. Last year's photo would be a great place to start. It would be fascinating to see how your style has changed over the years.

    That's funny, I noticed that too when I posted mine! YOU really deserve to put your feet up Marta - I do hope you had a wonderful day!

    You pushed me over the edge! I now have to go wade in the ocean. It is all your fault.
    Will post you a couple of photos later.
    Bad part? It is cold today. Not 73 degrees the fan is auto and not on one time today or yesterday.
    Rain and cold.

    This pinting is fantastic Marta. I would hang it on our walls immediately. (And that I wouldn´t say often.) It is beautiful. Absolutely wow!
