A good friend gave me a thank you card this week with several birds on it. I was particularly taken with the cardinal, so this evening I painted a small (4"x 6") watercolor of the cardinal. It is painted on 140 lb. hot-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper. It was a fun activity for a Saturday evening.

This is a painting I did from a photograph taken by one of my adult painters at Riverside Art Center, Misty Steinke.. It is a barn in northwest Ohio. I was taken by the beautiful clouds in her photo and felt I just had to paint it.
The painting is approximately 8 1/2 x 11 and is painted on 140 lb. hot pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.
I decided to use this painting for my watercolor class and they did so well with it. I am so proud of them - they are really good painters!

"Peggy's Cove Revisited"
This is the painting I prepared for last weeks lesson...it isn't as bright and cheerful as the others I have painted about Peggy's Cove. This one is on a dreary, misty, foggy day. I imagine they have those days as well, in Nova Scotia.
This painting is 8 1/2 x 11, and is painted on 140 lb. hot-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.

I recently finished this painting from a beautiful photo from my friend, Deb Holmes. She is a wonderful photographer and she generously shares her work with me. I am going to use this painting as a lesson for my adult watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. I hope they enjoy painting it as much as I have.

Last night, my watercolor class worked in abstraction. The subject was a water lily and as you can see, there are not any two alike. I think they had a lot of fun...we plan to finish next week. I am so lucky...this is such a great group!

This is the latest project painting that I have prepared for my watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. The subject is a lemonade pitcher which my husband and I bought several years ago in West Virginia along with 6 hand thrown clay cups. I added 2 Bosc pears to the still life before photographing. The painting is approx 9" x 12" and is transparent watercolor with black acrylic background. It is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.
