This was done for the WetCanvas postcard exchange. It is 4 x 6. I used a photo I had taken in Laguna Beach, California as the reference. These flowers were very unusual and were red. I like their silhouettes against the sky.
I have always participated in the visual arts including watercolors, drawing and sketching, pen and ink, and photography. Since retiring from teaching I have devoted much of my time to watercolors, sometimes combining them with pen and ink or collage.
Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel, and sketch and paint wherever I go. Painting, especially on location, captures the spirit and life of the subject. I hope to continue doing that for a long time to come.
