RE PHOTOGRAPHING MY WORK



I have started the process of re photographing my work.  This is one of my favorite pieces.  I have never entered it into a competition because it is relatively small.  I finally am going to mat and frame it and enter it into the National Watercolor Society Member show.

I used my gesso transfer process to cover an old painting and then used Dr. Martin's Hydrus liquid watercolor to paint with.

Sandra, I have too keep moving ahead. Nothing to be gained by crying over spilled milk. Glad you will be following along this year.

Thanks Marie, for the nice compliment.

Kathy, I appreciate your opinion.

Cynthia, my mom used to say "from your lips to G-d's ear!" Thanks!

Elizabeth, I will include this technique in my book. I am hoping to finish it in a few months.

I stumbled upon your blog tonight and what a treat. Your subjects are deep and engaging. The colors are hypnotizing. I can't wait to see more! Carry on.

this popped up randomly when i was "next blog"-ing and i have to say i'm impressed. my mom is a watercolor artist, and i have dabbled with it, and your pieces that i have seen so far are really interesting and captivitating- it's rare to see such a darkness and vividness in watercolors and i quite appreciate it! good luck on your journey of experimentation of creativity- it knows no bounds!

I was just browsing blogs and came upon yours. Generally I read a few lines and if the content does not give me something then I move on. When I came across yours, I had to stop and view every single blog post. Your art is amazing, powerful and touching. You are truly gifted.

Amazing piece! My husband is what I call a closet artist (painting one or two pieces a year hoping to earn a living someday as an artist but doing nothing to achieve that dream). I'm going to show him your blog...I think we'll both enjoy your blog!!!
