Proud Granddaughter

This is my artist granddaughter, Maddie, with the painting she did yesterday. Maddie is  nine years old and quite accomplished.  She has loved to draw since she was very small, I think one of my earliest posts was a portrait of me she did when she was five

How Many Koi

This 22x28 is my largest watercolor batik yet. How many fish do you see? The background in the painting is more purple than I could adjust the photo.

Gamecock Fan

Back to Watercolor Batik.  Loved the colors in this regal rooster I photoed at one of the plantation gardens near Charleston last spring.  He is mounted on an 18x18 canvas, I am attempting to move this medium into a larger format.  Our MNP group is working on Batiks for a show at the Greenville Chamber to be displayed in Nov. & Dec.


This is a transparent watercolor approx. 14 x 16 that I started at the Sue Archer workshop I took at Kanuga this year.  It is an attempt to paint in Sue's style of layering using strong contrast in lighting.  Loved the workshop and learned a lot.SOLD
