all new watercolor paintings in a theme of "home"
BIG thanks to all who showed support to me in various ways during this painting challenge, and during the studio exhibition the last weekend of April 2018.
Saturday had a quiet pace.
On Sunday, I was overwhelmed (in a good way). Wish I had even more time with each guest.
And special thanks to T.T. for the Cougar Gold Cheese from WSU's Ferdinand's Creamery.
an artist friend's words
"When I heard that the theme of your new paintings was 'home,' I thought of things domestic. However, your paintings are anything but domestic. They are alive and almost other-worldly in expression!"
from the guest book...
"Your watercolors break the light spectrum apart in the most magical way!"
art chat regarding observation in creative process...
"Perhaps intentionally noticing helps us become more present in our own lives - like children."
home ~ fifty days of painting
Beginning on March 9th, I challenged and permitted myself to paint almost daily for fifty days. I'm painting in a theme of "home" with imagery from my daily life here on Offut Lake. Read more about 50 Days of Painting...
My fifty day painting challenge ends on Friday April 27, the day before the show. Come see my learning curve in a progression of small paintings in water media. Maybe buy one for your home, or for your mom. Mother's Day is coming soon.
