watercolor 13 x 19
This was the demo that I did yesterday in a workshop that I gave at the Chesterton Art Center in Chesterton, IN. We all had a lot of fun and it is always amazing how each painting is so different.
They were white hydrangea, so I showed them that even though they were white, they could have alot of color in them. I also gave them some color combinations for pink, blue or purple ones. Some of the students tried these combinations, so they were all different. I had a great class of artists!!

watercolor 12 x 17
With great sadness I must tell you that my mom left this life to move unto the next on Friday, April 17 @ 11:15 pm. This past week was a really hard one for her and our whole family. Yesterday was her funeral. The wake and funeral were both lovely and I want to thank all who attended, sent prayers, cards and wishes. Thanks for all of the gorgeous flowers that were sent.
In fact, there were so many beautiful flowers so I took photos of them.
This is a demo that I did today for my afternoon class. There will be lots of flowers to come, so keep watching if you like flowers!!

watercolor 22" x 30"
Bet you thought this was me on a bike! Sometimes you are asked to paint things you never dreamed of painting. But, since this was a commission and we can always use more paint, I thought I would try it. I hope my client doesn't realizes that this bike would not even start, let alone ride. I hope it is what he wants. It was kinda fun to paint and it is a full sheet of watercolor paper. He liked the last two paintings that I did for him. Next I will have to frame it.

watercolor 11" x 7"
This was a little demo that I did for my students. I didn't use any maskit so I had to paint fast. Now they will be doing a paint off with this same subject.
I got my tulip paintings all framed and hanging in my kitchen. I am happy with how they add color to it. How blest we are to be artists and to create beautiful things for our homes and for others...
