My journalling explains most of these paintings. It was a wonderful 10 day camping trip. I tried to capture my favorite memories of the places we visited. Some of the earliest ones were from a sketchbook painting class I took with Catherine Carey at Bayview. She's who really got me started several years ago with keeping a watercolor sketchbook.
This one I did several years ago at Camp Crystal where several artists were painting outdoors. These were the local flowers. Someone suggested that I should put some writing in the background behind the flowers. I didn't want to take away from the crisp delicate flowers. What do you think?
Here are most of my paintings over the years. Susan Telford asked for it - I hope it doesn't overload you. Painting really gives my joy and I'm grateful for getting the chance to learn and grow in it. Besides it's lots of fun!!!
