"In the Distance, A Castle Looms..." 14 x 20, watercolor. SOLD.
I ended May and started June in the best possible way: painting on location at Capitol Reef National Park, surrounded by beauty and grandeur and magnificence at every turn. Painting there is such a powerful experience, and sharing the magic with lovely artist friends just adds whipped cream and a cherry to the already-decadent dessert. This time it was especially beneficial, as it pulled me out of a little bit of a funk and motivated me to keep painting, and keep painting, and keep painting.... I didn't want to stop! I completed six paintings in the two-and-a-half days I was there.
I am an artist and art instructor working in water media. Just knowing I can watch colors run together makes it worth getting out of bed every morning! Helping students capture the same excitement is equally rewarding.
