What an exciting year it was for me. Finding Art Tutor.com was the best gift I gave to myself.
I painted more this year than in any previous year and found the courage to get out of my comfort zone and try new subject matter.
|My first attempt at painting an animal in watercolor. It's a fair resemblance to my cat, Raji.|
I painted 3 series this year~that's a first. The Ishidori Series were all painted from photographs taken in the Alfred Kahn Garden in Paris.
The next four paintings were done from photographs by family and friends.
Bozeman, Montana in winter and summer.
|Winter storm NEMO~ Bristol, Maine|
The following paintings have "people" in them. I never felt comfortable painting human figures. Thanks to Art Tutor, that's changed!
I love owls. The one on the left is done with watercolor and pastel; the one on the right is watercolor and ink.
|This is a sculpture at the Louvre Museum in Paris.|
I took an "Imaginary Trip to New Zealand"...what beautiful islands with very diverse sites, culture and landscapes.
|Mont St. Michel, France|
|This is a birthday card for a special friend.|
Another series~ Dandelions
The last paintings of the year. The Peru Series inspired by the photos of a special Denver friend.
