here are my feet....i'm not a fan of feet, but definately am a fan of visually studying things(anything, as it turns out). and one day, obviously bored, i studied my feet on the coffeetable in front of me. this led me to paint them in watercolor, laugh at my stupidness when finished, and eventually add this silly sticker to the image (don't know where i got the sticker, this was painted at least 4 years ago). to top it off, i stuck it in the edge of my mirror, so i saw it every day. well, eventually i took it down, but didn't have the heart to get rid of it, i liked it so much. the pitiful reason for this is that (gulp) this is the best watercolor painting i have ever done! yes, sad but true, because this isn't so grand either! but i have never had any skill or talent with watercolor, only occasional luck. but this one...this wasn't luck! sad, again. anyway, it brought a huge smile to my face today when i found it!

Great painting Leeble. It's very different style from your line drawings. I looks like your foot too.

The sticker really makes this a completely different piece than it would otherwise - it adds humor! Your watercolor skills are something to be proud of. I checked out your tattoo illustration which I love! Terrific job on the lettering, swirls and the banner. You have a way with lines! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'll check back with you as well!
