This is one of my favorite daylilies in my garden….so graceful and delicate. I chose an image of one for a demo I did during an event at the Museum Center at Five Points in Cleveland TN.

This watercolor started as a demonstration piece at an event in 2016. Sometimes having eyes watching makes the process fairly uncomfortable but things went well as I developed this view down our dusty country road that leads from our home.
This is number 14 in my kimono series. I wonder when it will end? Hopefully no time soon! This one just made itself and has no big message to tell. It is simply a celebration of color and fun. When I finished, it made me think of how I felt as a youngster when I … [View Details]
