Catching Up After a Year...

Hi there... I know, the work here is pretty stale, isn't it?

I've been posting most of my work on a blog I began when I wasn't painting as often in gouache (Depicting Things). Over there you can see a few more of my gouache paintings, as well as some watercolors and drawings.

Not long ago it became clear that a lot of people are here looking at the work, and I'm back to gouache painting for the most part, so I think it's time to do a little catching up and begin posting here more often than I have.

Let's see... in March 2018 we took a wonderful trip from our home in Albuquerque to a family wedding in Mobile, Alabama. We drove--I should say my husband drove, while I painted much of the way there and back.  I took this little kit, using an Altoids tin palette that I could easily place on a pillow on my lap, painting in a Moleskine watercolor sketchpad. 

 Here are some of the paintings.

And here are a selection of gouache paintings done in the last year.

All of these are 2.5" x 3.5" in size, my standard ATC size (Artist Trading Cards), on a variety of papers. 

Thanks for staying with me here. If you have questions, please ask them. I'm happy to answer here. 



  1. What a wonderful record of your trip Deborah, it just shows what can be done with a minimal kit. Good to see your post.

    1. Thanks, Doug. Yes, my little system seemed to work pretty well, happily. Since then I have a new Altoids tin with a plastic divider for 15 colors. It works well!

  2. Deborah, thank you for sharing your beautiful work. I'm enjoying it very much. You've definitely inspired me!
