Sherri’s Ocean


I painted this watercolor yesterday from a photo of my new friend Sherri who has a blog named A View From My Summerhouse. Here ya go, Sherri! I hope you like it. πŸ™‚

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I love this! I’m hopeless at any kind of painting, so I just get awestruck at people who can do it well. The waves in particular… there’s so much energy to them. A nice warm painting, very charming πŸ™‚


    • Thank you, Steven. I appreciate that greatly. Waves are the hardest part of water to do. One thing I’ve wanted to learn how to do is waterfalls, but I have yet attempted it. I am amazed at people who can make waterfalls look so realistic!
      I’m glad you and others can see the energy in the waves. πŸ™‚


  2. Jill, I agree! Sherri is a pretty great person! I can’t believe I did that painting in one day either. I probably shouldn’t have, but sometimes when I’m “in the zone” as I like to say, and I have my colors mixed just how I want them, I don’t want to stop until I’m finished! Thanks so much! πŸ™‚


  3. I love it!


  4. Oh, Patsy, you’re so talented! I love it! You couldn’t have painted a more beautiful picture for a more beautiful person…Sherri is awesome!


  5. Reblogged this on A View From My Summerhouse and commented:
    My new friend and very talented artist Patsy kindly asked if she could paint a picture from my middle photo of Montana de Oro from my ‘Story of the Sea’ post (Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes) Delighted and then amazed that she has already painted it and here it is. I love, love, love it. So will you. Thanks so much Patsy πŸ™‚


  6. A huge huge…lol…long day…huge hugs I meant, sorry πŸ™‚


  7. Patsy, I absolutely love it! Wow, you have some talent young lady! I adore watercolours anyway and I admire those like you who have this gift very much. This is just the kind of painting I would put on my wall. I have never had anybody paint from one of my photographs before (it never even occurred to me that anyone would want to!) and I am really quite speechless, which never happens, LOL πŸ˜‰ I’m so excited about it I will have to reblog this for my readers to see. Bless you and thanks so much πŸ™‚ Sending you a huge huge πŸ™‚ xx


    • I’m glad you like it! I would kind of like to try and sell it if you don’t mind. Or would you rather have it as a gift? I just think it would cost a lot to ship it to you. Aren’t you in the UK? LOL! Anyway, let me know how you feel about that, okay? πŸ™‚


      • Hi again Patsy. Sorry I am only just getting back to you, with the time difference and also been thinking about your proposal.

        Much to my amazement and totally unexpected surprise, I’ve been getting some really lovely and very humbling comments about my photographs for a while now (as far as I’m concerned I point the camera and shoot, just a digital camera, nothing fancy, but I have always enjoyed taking photographs, my children, poor things, will testify to that, ha!!!) to the extent that I have been seriously thinking about trying to market some of them, or put them together with my poems in a sort of an anthology, or something like that. I have given some as gifts to family in the past and that ‘s as far as it’s gone. Like you, I work from home but I have no idea how to go about this.

        Your offer of sending it your painting to me as a gift is a really lovely gesture, I would love it, but it would probably be expensive to ship it as yes, I do live in the UK! How big is it? Are you going to paint more? I wonder how much it would cost, I could pay the postage maybe as I would dearly love to have such a beautiful original painting of a place that means so much to me πŸ™‚

        Otherwise, then yes, go ahead and sell it but I wonder if you could mention credit back to my original photograph in the process to help with my exposure and to protect my photograph’s copyright? I’m not sure how this works!

        What I’m trying to say is, let’s talk! Do you mind emailing me? Here is my address:

        Thanks again Patsy, this is has been so exciting and I hope you are pleased with all the wonderful responses on my blog to your beautiful artwork. I never expected this to happen this week πŸ™‚


        • Wow! Whatever you would like to do sounds great! I actually made it an 8×10, a little smaller than it printed out on my computer. As you could see, not the entire ocean on the left is really there. Anyway, I have no idea how much it would cost to ship it. I definitely have already linked the photo of it on my FB art page to your blog giving you the credit for your photo. And I will e-mail you about the shipping, etc. My e-mail is

          I am so glad to hear that you are getting good responses about the painting on your blog. I haven’t had a chance to hop over there yet, but I will in a little bit. πŸ™‚

          You are very welcome. I sure didn’t expect this to happen this week either. I am happy it did. Doing the painting was fun. It didn’t feel as stressful as the airplane I did for my Pastor last week. That had to be pretty technically drawn which was a real challenge. But I was happy to do it.

          Anyway, we will definitely be talking, okay? πŸ™‚
