15 Feb Happy Valentine’s Month!
Hello my friends in art,
There is no limit to the beautiful Flora and Fauna in Florida, therefore no limit to my inspiration for painting, just not enough hours in the day. It is a challenge to designate specific painting time for exploring new inspirations. Last month I focused on my entry for the international competition of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America (TWSA) called “Searching 21”, which you see below. It was very time consuming but I am pleased with the results.
With February at hand, I painted Roses! Two of these paintings were featured in the newsletter this month. You can find them on this website in “Hot off the Easel”. They are both paintings of the Peace Rose, my favorite. Beginning this week I am painting the beautiful white flowered “Bird of Paradise”, just for the love of painting. This “play time” is my teacher in what makes me a better painter. I hope you will browse through my galleries and enjoy the various styles and images.
If you are looking for an inspiring exhibition to view, please consider the 12th Annual International Watermedia Signature Exhibition at the Fallbrook Art Center, Fallbrook, CA. A painting from my “Searching” series is on exhibit there.
