Doña M. 20" x 28" Transparent Watercolor
Phew! I worked up a sweat on this one! Finally it's done and I like the results! I had really wanted to call this "What wuz I thinking!" because the dress was a lot of work! Trying to make sure the black was not flat but not too contrasting and still a part of the overall area.
I had been wanting to paint Doña M. for a few years now. When I first met her I thought what a beautiful person, her smile was angelic, her walk was deliberate and respectful. Then I heard her speak with a voice that was course and tough and I liked her even more. I've found that with traditional people, the tougher they are, the more compassionate the are.

I'm really pleased with the way this one is turning out although I need to be careful not to over do it now. It's easy to overwork things isn't it? !
This is one of the first in a new series I've started called "Healers, Dreamers, Travelers" People who have that magic about them, their touch healing, their stories intriguing and their nature, spiritual.

I just recieved notice today that my painting "Yellow Hammer" has been accepted into the CWA's 40th Annual Exhibition! I am very honored to have been chosen as these national exhibitions are tough to get into and very proud to be a part of what I'm sure will be an outstanding exhibition.
