Bunnies!

 



I created four bunnies in watercolor for the Easter holiday and showed them at the Full Moon Gallery.  Fortunately I sold two, but have these (my favorites) left.  I named them Betty on top and Dotty (lower).  They are framed with a dark blue mat board, and a white frame.  Very fun!  (My images appear to have a different color in the background, but they are the same paper and background color)

Now at the Full Moon Gallery - Gallery Cats

SNEAK PEEK!
Just finished hanging the new Full Moon Gallery Show titled "Far and Wide".
These two cat paintings are new and hanging in the Lobby at 
Twin Falls Center for the Arts.
I was inspired to paint cats because of a stray in the neighborhood.  
She came by now and then, slept on the patio furniture and meowed at us while looking in through the windows, but scattered if we came near.  
She did the same at the neighbors.  
She has moved on, but her presence has inspired some painting images.  

I think she ranges "Far and Wide".

'Tis the Season...

Having fun trying new things this holiday season, along with some old favorites!
Got out my old sewing machine and did some free form stitching on canvas and paper. A good feeling getting my 40+ year old Bernina out of the closet for some new tricks.

I added Watercolor Ground to 4 "x 4" canvas supports and then painted fall and winter scenes in watercolor.  


Block printing on dish towels is a new way to work for me.  Those old fashioned cotton towels that we all used growing up are the best for drying dishes.  Now they can be pretty too!



 I mounted prints on wood supports and turned them into tree ornaments.  I have painted the Sun Valley Barn in many ways and seasons, but it seems like winter is the most fitting.

 The Takeoff!

I am so happy to announce that my painting The Takeoff has been juried into the annual Idaho Watercolor Society Show!  The painting along with the other forty-nine  semi-finalists will hang in the gallery at the BSU Student Union in June.  The judge,  Ted Nuttal, will be in Boise in early June to review the paintings and choose the top 20.  Awards will be announced virtually, and will be available on the IWS website.  
This is very exciting!   

PS.  I was painting along the the edges of Flat Creek on the outskirts of Jackson, WY when I was fortunate to see this swan ready for take off.  Happily, I had my camera in hand and got many shots as this beautiful bird took flight.  Somedays, you get lucky!

It is the last week of Art & Soul!

Visit Colliers in downtown Twin Falls to see my entry for Art & Soul.  My entry number is 10-014 if you care to vote!  This piece is called "Camp Host at Gros Ventre".  Gros Ventre is our favorite campground just outside of Jackson, WY.  Lots of moos in camp each year when we visit in the fall.

On a Roll with Yellow Flowers

The only flower color in my yard right now is yellow!  Definitely need to order some tulip bulbs with new colors for next years bloom!  My iris, which I haven't painted, yet, is yellow too.   Not that I'm complaining.  Since we are stuck at home, I am happy to have something to paint!
