The James Journals: 1st Edition

The James Journals - Volume 1 - 1st Edition

The Coastal Hideaway, Captain Swift Inn, Camden, Maine - August 10, 2010

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Brian and I have started watercolor painting together.  We're calling this project "The James Journals, Volume 1". Ok, I am. (Brian's not as much of a fan of alliteration...he calls them "those-awesome-journals-that-we-paint-in-together")

After we bought those coveted watercolor journals on our vacation in Maine, we wanted to use our materials as soon as possible. We had planned to walk down to the harbor to paint Penobscot Bay, but it was raining that night, so we scavenged our room at the bed and breakfast for something to paint indoors. We quickly found a basket full of sea shells and set these up against my pink nightgown as our first subject.

Drum roll please...

Here are our first set of "his" and "hers" paintings.

There's much more to come...
(we have 59 more pages left in our journals!)


  1. What a lovely project! They paintings are so beautiful.

  2. What a great idea. These paintings look very happily married.

  3. They are both so beautiful in their own unique way! It's fascinating to see two perspectives of the same thing! Very neat :)
