So I framed the three and hung them in the kitchen in a kind of mini-gallery. It may be that we'll get tired of looking at them, or that my style of painting will evolve over time -- in which case I can either add more framed watercolors to the wall, or use these frames, standard for watercolor paper, to display newer work.
One thing I know for sure: I am never bored when trying to paint. Some may see it as arrogant to frame anything at this early stage of learning how to paint. Others may suggest that there is little or no sign that I am taking a course in the Volunteer Park Conservatory in the 12-15 watercolors that I did paint during the course. I don't really care what anyone thinks. I've got a lot to learn and hope that at some point in the future I will actually be able to paint what I see. In the meantime, Matisse's quote seems appropriate. I'm signed up for another six weeks of classes at the conservatory.
