Cover Girl!

 
I never would have thought in a million years that my painting "Honoring the Elders" would have made the cover of that local yellow pages!  What an honor!

Flower Girl

 
Flower Girl 20"x 20"  watercolor
 
It all started with this flower painting by my girl
 
 
She had asked if she could try my watercolors and this is what she came up with, that gave me the inspiration I needed to do a portrait of her, that and the fact that she NEVER lets her hair be put into braids or pony tails or anything, it's always free and flowing, so when she said I could braid her hair and tie it up like her Great Grandma's and she saw her self, she couldn't stop giggling.  I had a lot of fun painting this one, letting the paint flow and drip and make as much mess as Lily did when she was painting.   
 
Here's some of the steps it took to finally finish what is now one of my favorite paintings. 
 


 
 
I hope you enjoy seeing my latest work as much as I enjoyed painting it!
