Orchid Face

A pink orchid to send you into the weekend...we are looking at several beautiful days to lead us into October!  Can't believe Halloween is coming up...Just found out one of my paintings was accepted into the New England Watercolor Society's Regional show at the Plymouth Center for the the link for more information.

I had some great name suggestions for my last post painting.  Here are a few: "Show off", "perfection in bloom", "A hint of blue", "A touch of purple", "Kaleidoscope Iris", "A cloud of iris", "Sunshine Iris", "Reaching out", "Smiling Iris", "end of summer", "Pastel beauty" and "The glow of summer".  Thanks to all who sent in possible titles!  This post's iris is already titled "Frills".

Summer is almost over! Unbelievable...but fall is nice too...this is a little painting from this summer and captures those short-lived irises...I didn't have too many this year in the garden.  Anyone have a name suggestion for this watercolor?

"Reigns Supreme"

Yesterday I drove to Waitsfield to drop off my work for the upcoming Round Barn show.  This is one of the paintings for the show, "Reigns Supreme".  The show opens on Sunday the 22nd and runs through the 13th of October.  This is such a unique venue in a wonderful location!

One of the last of the summer bloomers...I see all sorts of sunflowers around town...some as tall as 10 feet!  This little painting is 7.5"x7.5", but was done from a photograph I took of one of those tall growers...The stalk alone was well over an inch thick!  Pushing the complements yellows and violets...

Living Color

Yesterday was the opening reception for the Watercolorists show "Living Color" at the Bryan Gallery in Jeffersonville.  So many people were there.  I was part of an artist panel "round table" discussion prior to the opening where I got to speak a little about myself and my artistic practices and experiences.  It was a fun day!  "Spring Awakening" is at the show 23"x30" framed.

Playful peony

Another small painting measuring 7.5"x7.5".  Pushing the mauves, pinks and purples in this one with the pop of bright yellow in the center.  I like to engage my edges...which means that I paint up to and beyond the edge of the paper...this tells the viewer that there is more happening around what you can see.
