Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD Watercolor & Signs of Justice

Just about every single time I walk by this yard on Carroll Avenue in the summer I stop and take photos of the bees, butterflies and blooms. This time, it was the colorful “We Believe” sign that caught my eye. Later as I was sketching from the photos, I realized I couldn’t see all of the words at the bottom so I searched online and found  Jameesa Oakley’s Etsy shop – SignsofJustice — ( you can order your own yard sign at the link!). They have other great signs too, so check them out!

Matted prints and note cards of my painting are available from my Etsy shop, MichelleBaileyArt.

Like the yard sign? You can get one at Signs of Justice!

Takoma Park DC Library Sketch (for those who asked about it)

Hello to the kids walking by that I chatted with. You asked me what I was doing sitting across from the Takoma Park DC Library way up on a steep hill. I had just started my sketch but I mentioned I would post the final image when I was done. You walked by again and showed me that you had found my website on your phone and asked if that was really a photo of me on the about page. Very impressive that you took the time to find out! I hope you enjoy this sketch.

Takoma Bicycle Watercolor Pen & Ink

Last Monday I used the opportunity of the beautiful weather to go outside and do some sketching. I walk by this place all the time and love the whirligigs in the front lawn so I thought it would be fun to paint– and it was quite a challenge! I’m new to sitting and painting outside like this. I love how using a watercolor sketchbook helps me loosen up and explore new ways of painting. I think I’m hooked!

Some sketchbook prints are now available from my etsy shop: MichelleBaileyArt.etsy.com. Please email me about any images you are interested in that you don’t see listed.
