It's Mine

I submitted this painting into the Northwest Watercolor Society Waterworks 2009. It was accepted into the show. The juror is well known Watercolor Artist Christopher Schink. I am so proud!!!! It took it to the framer and had a wonderful frame and mat put on it and it looks wonderful. Our reception ceremony was last night. There were at least 100 people there. This painting is hanging proudly at the Kaewyn Gallery in Bothell, WA, until the show ends on November ends on November 24th. This is the very first time I have had a painting accepted into a show, in fact its only the second time I have ever entered. I feel blessed, and will continue painting birds. They are a wonderful subject for a painting.

Twin Rocks

This is the second painting done at Rockaway Beach. Twin Rocks is a local landmark. The water/waves were the topic of the workshop. I really love the grasses in the foreground. Need to work more on water.

Painting the Oregon Coast

I just got back from attending a workshop in Rockaway Beach, with watercolor artist and teacher Susie Short. We were learning to paint waves/water. This is the first painting we finished. I love it. Wish the sky wasn't quite so pastel. Will work more on waves.

This painting was fun to do, although black is a really hard color to work with. I like how this turned out. I do need to paint faces more. Practice - practice - practice!!!
