Watercolor ATC - Sender's Choice Swap

Here is another Watercolor ATC swap that I was a part of. I could not decide on which painting to send, so I sent both to my swap partner. The first one is of Rockaway Beach, Oregon... A place I took the kiddos to this summer. The other one is of a lion... yet he almost looks human. You decide.

Alice in Wonderland ACEO

In celebration of 150 years of Alice in Wonderland, I decided to paint the Cheshire Cat in watercolor.... ACEO size. I painted this during a contest in a Facebook group I am involved with, but did not win. More talented artists.

It is very hard to draw or paint people faces. I've practiced many times without success in most cases. With this ACEO painting, I decided on a side view with eyes closed. It eliminates most of the challenging areas that some get stuck on. As I was painting her, I was aiming for a Native American teenage girl. Upon completion, it was noticeable that she not only looked Native American, She looked like a few other nationalities. So it came clear to me, that the title should be "Peace" because no matter what nationality we are, we are still people who live together in this world.
