The event location was incredible. I loved having the class overlooking the Mississippi River. greeted us warmly and came prepared with easels, extra paints, brushes, and mixing pallets. He guided us to sketch the view and helped us pick out the appropriate colors for our painting. He gave us the time to independently work on our projects with his guidance. His suggestions and encouragement were perfect. We left with a new interest and love of painting.

Title or Location: Wild Carrots At Dusk
I named this watercolor "Wild Carrot At Dusk" (18"x14.25") I wanted to capture the sun setting on some Wild Carrots or Dacus Carota you probably call it Queen Anne's Lace. This painting is part of a series where I am working to feature everyday things in our environment to celebrate them and have the viewer look closer at their glory. Therefore I use beautiful colors and knockout textures to bring out the beauty in nature, hopefully making you look twice. The symbolism of this wild flower is san

Title or Location: "Reflection"
I decided during the ice and cold weather we had recently to set up a quiet place around my recliner with a blanket, my watercolor pads and easel to take some time to enjoy the week painting. I turned on youtube videos of aquatic ocean with relaxing meditation music. All of a sudden my brush decided to paint "Reflection" from the imprint of the marine bold and beautiful movements I was watching. Taking all of those movements creating a piece of artwork that can speak without saying words gives s

Title or Location: Magnolia Diptych
Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee and now residing in Hernando, Mississippi magnolias have always been a piece of nature?s beauty I have admired. I began studying magnolia shapes on my walks with my daughter and painted several pieces in a study of the blooms. A local Memphis designer, Maggie Clarke, came across my works and commissioned me to paint these 26x36 watercolors. This diptych largest size I have done to date!

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.
