A different painting medium

So, this is what I would love to be painting, with watercolors.

But in getting the house ready to sell, I'm working in latex housepaint instead, with an eggshell sheen. It's definitely satisfying to see the end result, but my illustration and blogging life are on hold for the next couple of weeks.

Before (the only dark color in the house):

Love the new color! Hope your house sells soon.

Thanks, Marsha! I think this gold ochre might be at home in your glowing palette, and I'm definitely enjoying the change.

Beautiful color. It will sell in no time. I wish my workspace looked that nice and clean.
Hope that you are well Amy.

Thanks, Vanessa. The clean desk is such an ephemeral thing for me; it's back to disorganized at the moment. But I do love that feeling.
