a passing moment

Looking out the 3rd floor window to the morning passers below.

I've got my watercolour paintings adhered to supports now, just like Aquabord! Super happy with the way they look. They are open in the back and can be hung easily.

Maria Bennett Hock bought the Kookaburra I painted and she sure is happy with hers! It is moisture-resistant with a UV Gloss.

  1. Love these on the supports! What medium are you using to adhere them, Nora? A great 3rd floor view too.

  2. I always like views from above, and the way you have incorporated so much detail is so effective. I particularly like the bicycle and the way the tree takes your eye down to it. And the colours are delicious as always. Like the way your paintings are mounted, avoids the need for a mount and frame.

  6. This 3rd floor view makes me homesick for Toronto having lived there for 2 years (actually in Oakville). Its such a vibrant city! I love this as you have captured the essence of a day in the city.

  8. So how did you attach the watercolor paper to a box?....Could you tell us more about how/what you did to accomplish this? I absolutely adore your work, by the way. Love the quick sketches and the quick watercolor work.....both attained by hours and hours of practice as we all know.

  9. You really nailed that bird view perspective. I can really see myself on the 3rd floor looking down. It is lovely.

    Also think that the way you present the watercolors, the box, really gives the painting another edge.

  12. I love this post! Firstly, I love every picture. The city scene is beautiful - lively, alive! I think the walking people in the picture bring it to life, not to mention the way your color just blends, as always - those wet-on-wet touches of yours. The birds are both great - I love birds. Fun colors. And of course inquiring minds want to know - like the others. I have a drawer full of watercolors because I am too lazy and cheap to buy frames. This is a really neat idea.

  16. Nora those supports look super. Does the finish you spray on them for protection darken the work? Thanks for the tips you share. Have a great day.
