Five Minute Watercolors

After working all day and then coming home to a house full of MORE stuff to do and worry about, I've been having trouble relaxing. Brian suggested I find something that I enjoy doing that could be done in 5-minute increments - meaning that he understands that I have little more than 5 minutes at a time to call my own. So I came up with my little watercolors.

I've always liked watercolor and, for some reason, only work small. Here is a sample of what I've been up to lately:


  1. These are wonderful! I'm a fan of the tiny painting, myself. Love the idea of a 5-minute project, kind of like doing gesture drawings in college. Kudos, too, on the hubby who "gets" that you only get 5 minutes at a time, and encourages you to use that time creatively, that's terrific! :D

  2. Thanks Lisa for giving me perspective about the hubby. At first I was kinda piqued that he thought it was OKAY that I only had 5 minutes!


Whatcha thinkin'?
