I painted this little watercolor on a 6x6 block that I just couldn't resist buying. The paper is very smooth and slick with sizing but I like how I can move the paint around on it. The washes stay wet and the paper doesn't buckle.
A birdwatcher friend was highly amused when I told him how I reminded myself that this bird is a snowy egret. Snowy egrets have yellow feet and to make that association was to think 'don't eat yellow snow'. I know, but it worked ;)
Last Sunday I had the most fabulous day out visiting friends and artists at the annual North River Arts Festival. Despite the gloom and doom weather forecast both days ended up sunny and beautiful.
These photos of the Puppet Parade say it all!
The NRAS bathing beauty and her cabana
can you see who's inside?
It took me a while but I figured out
who was underneath this outfit ;)
It was 'Honorable Mention" winner Sally Dean
with her fantastic mosaic "Amelia"
