Watercolor show part 4

I was in Venice Florida in January 2005, and as usual took the opportunity to indulge in some art and craft. My habit is to bring only one piece of carry-on luggage, so any art I created had to be small in order to have room to bring back. So I bought a pack of index cards, a kids' watercolor set, and set myself a challenge of seeing how many creative scenes could I paint using the same small space. How different would they be? Would I run out of ideas?

I had totally forgotten about this experiment until I re-organized my bookcase, the one with my handmade books on it. I had fun looking at them. The actual skill level is no great shakes but it's a start. So here are the results, in 6 sets. This and the next post will be a watercolor art show!

Love the snake because it reminds me of this knitted scarf pattern I have in one of my knitting books I can't figure out how to use. (Straight knit is all I know.)
