Here is the painting I did while in Collioure, France. I love the colorful fishing boats in front of the tower. This painting is not for sale. Ron claimed it for himself!

This is the same scene that Francoise painted in my class where the idea of going to France to paint was born!

This painting is in the 40th Anniversary Exhibit of the Potomac Valley Watercolorists at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA. The paintings are so amazing! I am proud to be a member of this group.  The reception was wonderful and very well attended. I hope you will have a chance to see it before it is over on Oct 24th. You will be amazed at the many various techniques of the artists.

I don’t know the name for this flower that grows in Haiti, but I see it growing through the countryside and all around Village of Hope School (www.villageofhopehaiti.org) each time I go. It is a small flower, about an inch or so and it grows in clusters. They are thick and sturdy plants with big leaves that feel like plastic. I took liberties with the color using my artistic license that I got when I started to paint!

Ok, so this is not a brand new painting for this 30 day challenge. But since my challenge is more about posting each day, I thought I’d tell you about this painting. It is watercolor painted on yupo. It is hanging at Green Spring Gardens Horticultural Center in the Springfield Art Guild Exhibit. It won first place (Thank you juror, Brenda Barthell!) I am honored.
