I usually wait until I have 3 new followers but today I'm sharing with just 2 new ones; and they are...

1.  Tina Marohn works in watercolor, acrylics, and oils, sharing her work on her blog simply called Paintings by Tina Marohn.  She is from the northwest coast of Washington and has a great variety of paintings to share - plus she does pet commissions.  Stop on over and view her work, from paintings inspired by her trips in Japan to very personable pet portraits.  

Tina first commented on my blog about Smudge, and seeing her cat portraits I see she and her husband are both cat parents.  And check out that gorgeous stained glass window she shows off in her house - wouldn't that be something to inspire you every day of the year?

2.  Kevin Neal, of Kevin Neal Paintings, is another artist who delves in drawing and painting in watercolors.  He has been a chef and an illustrator, and is now finding more personal time for his art.  He creates some beautiful impressionist watercolors from mental images, or just letting the pigment and water tell him where it wants to go - but adding his own well-developed sense of composition to the end result. 

Kevin is from Oregon - is there something in the water and air out there that creates so many wonderful artists?  His blog is very well organized so you can just click on boxes at the top to take you where you want to go if you don't have time for a leisurely scroll down the blog posts. 

Kevin said he found my blog from Gary Everest's blog - and since they are both in Portland, I think they should find time to paint together or at least get together for a cup of something hot or a glass of something cold one day!  And check out Kevin's photo on his blog - with that smile :)

That's it for today.  Enjoy!
