'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!
