Watercolor cool off

Hot enough for you all? This week was something else in Brooklyn. With temps well into the 100’s staying cool was top of mind this week. I have been working on some fun, cool {ha} watercolors that I thought I’d share. They are very beach and summer oriented which is perfect since clearly we are […]
