I haven't been slacking off painting since August, I've been busy teaching watercolor around town, cooking and trying to be an adequant wife and mother. While these are worthy pursuits, the blog has been dormant of new paintings and any fans I might have had are probably now busy checking out rival watercolorists blogs. I now plan to keep my blog going regularly regardless of the needs of my family and community. Watercolor painting needs to survive in our consumeristic, cyper-dominated society and I am taking the responsibility seriously of developing a new generation (regardless of your age) of watercolor artists so the art of painting doesn't die out. Anyway, here is one of my latest paintings. It is larger then I have been painting for a while, approx. 22x24 matted. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
