Landscapes for the Postcard Trade on Wetcanvas

There is a new trade on Wetcanvas called "Wish You Were Here".  Postcard sized pieces of original artwork done showing landscapes around the area where you live.  I did a few from my yard and the rest were from photos I have taken when my plein air group goes out. 

The first one is from a trip we made to the mountains which is about 45 minutes from my house.  These mail boxes are about half way there.

The second one is from a cattle ranch in those same mountains.  My friends Ron and Shari lived and worked on this ranch and my art group was able to go there for a painting session twice.  No more trips there tho as my friends retired and moved.

The third one is a metal sculpture of some Mexican musicians from a statuary place called Majestic Palms.  They have some larger trees, lots of pots, metal sculpture, and statues.  And a koi pond with a small bridge going across the pond.  Many, many, many huge koi fish in the pond. 

These are all 4x6 inches on watercolor paper with watercolors, colored pencils, and pens.
