I have totally fallen in love with watercolor artist Ali Cavanaugh’s work. Check out her new book; Modern Fresco Paintings. They are the juiciest paintings of her kids and their friends. Love love love. So I have done mine! The Team Mate and Backyard Solo. Let’s see if I can get in Florida Watercolor with these? To be continued….
I finally finished this piece of my Mom and her sister and I'm keeping it! I'll send you a print Shelly! I just love my Mom's sweet little smiling face and cinnamon bun on her head. Little Judy. I love you Mom. I miss you everyday.
Our Daily Painting group is at it again! Heather Earnest, Pat Weaver, Nancy Johnson and Lynn Ashford and myself have committed to the challenge. To encourage bigger works, we have redefined our goals and decided on 4 paintings a week and a blog about it on Thursdays. My first week at it resulted in only 3 pieces but they are huge and I love them!! Here's what each of us did.
Christine Peloquin; acrylics, charcoal, fabric and paper collage on wood panel
Heather Earnest; watercolor
Pat Weaver; watercolor
Nancy Johnson; watercolor
Lynn Ashford; watercolor and acrylics
Finished and SOLD! Thanks Sherri!

I have had the huge honor of being asked to do a demo at the Florida Watercolor Society 45th Annual Convention in September. (wahoo!) I figure it is my duty to attempt a watercolor piece and to enter into the show to go along with my acrylic (done in an aqueous manner.) My challenger insisted! Well I love a challenge and I just love how this piece came out!! Here is The Inspector done in stages. I'll let you know if I get in!

Yeah. You people know who you are! I have been challenged to get a piece into the Florida Watercolor Society Show. So here's my new piece per instructions. "Using acrylics in an aqueous manner...". Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. Butter Me Up.
There is nothing,
as to allow yourself
when we are stripped
of all the armor
we thought we needed
how high we
