My students decided they wanted to do an Arabian horse for class this week so I painted this one ahead so I would know all the pitfalls before I did the demo at class. This one was much more complicated than I anticipated and it will be a difficult one for my class. I am happy with how it turned out and it will go to the gallery as well. It is also for sale on my website at

I haven't painted flowers for quite a while and I wanted something to hang at the gallery that wasn't horses so I decided to do this iris painting. I had painted it once before for a donation to an auction and liked it so much I wanted to do it again. I think it turned out well and will be going to the gallery soon.

This was also a class lesson. Isn't he cute? This was done on 140# Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.

This was my demo for my watercolor class last Wednesday. I did a bit more work on him this morning and he's ready to go. I will be putting him on Ebay for sale.

This is the project I chose for our watercolor challenge for the month of January. The calm sky and rolling hills really appealed to me and the wild grasses in front seemed to set off that quiet calmness. This is my painted version.

I did this little portrait for a watercolor friend of her little dog. He is quite old and she wanted something to remember him by. His cute little face was a joy to paint!
