My 2017 Succulent Watercolor Calendar

While my garden baked in summer heat, I tackled three indoor tasks: (1) paint 12 watercolors for my 2017 calendar, (2) edit video footage that’s been piling up for YouTube, and (3) clean and organize my office. I finished #1, got halfway through #2, and am still working on #3. Can you guess which I enjoy doing most?

I recently splurged on high-quality watercolor paints, and what a difference! The colors are much more vibrant. Here’s Miss September: Aloe brevifolia. See more.

I’ll have a limited quantity of my 2017 Succulent Watercolor calendars at the Succulent Extravaganza at Succulent Gardens Nursery near Santa Cruz, CA, Sept. 23-24. I’m giving presentations both days and would love to see you there!

My calendars and other succulent-themed gift items are available at my Zazzle store. Never pay full price at Zazzle. They charge way too much! I use them because their production values are high and there’s no overhead, leaving me free to paint and design. (I receive 10%.)  Zazzle doesn’t make it easy to pass along discounts, but here’s a 20%-off code to copy-and-paste when you order: HZGUHTNYMVIIMXPRXNIU.

In July and August, I also edited and posted nine new videos on my YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe if you’d like to be notified the moment a new ones comes out. This is the most popular, and perfect for fall: How to Refresh Overgrown Succulents.

As for my office…uh…hopefully I’ll finish it this week or next. I’m tired of stepping around stuff stacked on the floor!
