Happy accident. I leaned a martini watercolor up against a sunrise oil and thought.....I need to combine these images. So, here it is! Oil on Canvas 36 x 24"http://dianemorganfineart.com/works/1722728/martini-sunrise
Client wanted a replica of Jean-Honore Fragonard's "The Love Letter" replacing the cocker spaniel with her two pups. Still a little work to do on the face and add the dogs. Almost done! Oil on canvas 28" x 36" www.dianemorganpaints.com
I inadvertently leaned my martini painting up against a
recent landscape. Top half is an oil; bottom a watercolor. I thought …….hmmmmmm…… I might have something
here. I think I will have to paint this
Tried a new surface. Arches watercolor board. It's quite nice. Fun to work with. Stains a little easier with some colors, but overall I'd give it a two thumbs up. No buckling because the entire sheet is glued to a board. No need to tape or staple to a support. Comes in 32" x 40" sheets. Quite reasonable. "Sunken Treasure" 8-1/2" x 11" http://dianemorganfineart.com/works/1624419/sunken-treasure
Had fun at the Rancho Mirage Public Library reception for the three watercolor ladies.... Robin St. Louis, Moira Johannessen and yours truly. Unbelievably, Solveig Rimstad who lives in Norway sent her Palm Desert cousin Inger Yarijian with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me. That's the second time she has done this. Thank you Solveig! Inger took a picture, I thought, but it is missing from my camera. Must not have pushed the button hard enough.
It's always so much fun to me how everyone paints something so completely different from the same photo. Love that. I think I'm finally recovered from my two week trip to Michigan. Took awhile to get back in the swing of things. I really had fun with family and friends and the two workshops I taught. Working on schedules now for four workshops there next year. Can't wait to go back. www.dianemorganpaints.com
