"Trumpet Taster" watercolor class demo

Another demo from one of last week's classes. Of course, not finished in two hours. Watercolor on Arches hot press 10" x 15". Hot press is a challenge. Someone recommended it saying I would love it. NOT! I'm constantly getting blossoms and the paint seems to sit on top. Can't wait till it's all gone.  Available at

"La Tortue" watercolor demo for class and April challenge

This is my demo from Thursday's class. "La Torture" watercolor 10" x 14. " I hadn't planned it, but it also works for the April water challenge by a great group of artists at  The scene is from a fishing village in Punte del Este, Uruguay.  La Tortue is French for turtle, though my students were certain it meant torture.  As we know...water is not easy to paint.  I've added a Sunday class to the schedule, and there is still space for tomorrow's class if y'all can hop on over. April's schedule can be seen at

Little Ava....budding artist

Ava's art. As I was loading my car yesterday getting ready for Indian Wells Arts Festival my neighbor and her little 3-1/2 yr old granddaughter stopped by to look at my art. Ava wants to be an artist and loved my lady bug paintings. An hour later the doorbell rang and its was Ava bringing me a gift of one of her drawings. She wanted the artist she met to have one of her pieces of art. How cute is that !
