Spring Peepers - now supersized!!

 Spring Peepers
watercolor, 10" x 13"
Chris Beck

These days, everything gets supersized -- even the Peepers painting!! (OK, so supersized may be a bit of an exaggeration, but hey -- all things are relative!!) I revisited this subject this past week because the original challenge painting was a tad small for exhibition purposes. And actually, this is the second go at this size -- the first one met a sad end when I added a wash without thinking it through beforehand. We never become immune to these little "oops" moments I guess!!

I'm painting away, glad to have broken through the block that has been stifling me for quite a while now. It feels great to be back in the studio.


  1. It's great! I love the humor and the great composition.

  2. Love it! Love the painting and the humor in it - and the size (would even like it bigger but that's just me). Hope you got a chance to stop by and see my spring peepers - all our treefrogs we were raising from tadpoles to froglets :)

  3. Thanks, Carol and Rhonda! Glad you like it.

    Rhonda,I haven't been following blogs for a while, but I just went through all your froggie posts. What fun!! I'm impressed with your success at raising these little guys!

  4. About time you are painting again! Looking forward to lots more.


Stop in and say hello!!
