Westminster Abbey” watercolor on Canvas, 18x24.

“Here lies what was mortal….”

The square in front where I did the sketch for this painting in front of the Abbey was very much alive though!

These “three graces” painted from life model are going to be framed, and will be for sale. I always have the hardest time separating from my life model drawing. It’s a moment in time I can’t re-live, not even through photo references as there are none!

Great to see my print in this TV appearance. I have no idea how it got there 😅, but thank you to whoever brought it.

Beautiful morning at Carmel market yesterday! Won first place in Quick paint, sold the painting and connected with some incredible people!

Isabella, my beautiful model who was passing by and who I asked to model for me at the flower stand, wrote to me: “Today was magical: you made my day!”

She made my day and this award!

Need Advice!

I was going to take these canvases to my framer to stretch tomorrow…..before Penrod! But I kind of like this raw presentation on loose canvas, that really shows the process. Should I leave them like that? And let my customers choose how to stretch/frame/Mount these canvasses?

I primed the canvasses with watercolor gesso for painting and now varnished with UV protective archival varnish.

This painting started in en plein air in Vernazza. I found a shady spot on a very hot day, but half of my view was obscured by the cement railing. It became cloudy (and later it rained) while I was painting, so my initial light was gone and I had to work from memory and imagination, and I still didn’t know where the second bottom of my painting would go. The idea of the bottom half came to me in Portofino, while having lunch and watching these boats. And voilà! “Liguria”, watercolor, 20x24 framed.

Note to myself: make sure all the paintings are signed before taking them to the show and just in case bring the oil/acrylic pen to sign. Now I have to ship it back to Lafayette to its new home. Being organized is not my strength!

I was on my peony spree last week when I visited my mom (after painting peonies all day at the studio) and snapped the picture of her wilting peonies.
“Why are you taking the picture of dying flowers?!” she murmured. “Because they are perfect!” was my reply.
I couldn’t wait to get back to the studio and execute my vision. And voilà!

Happy Memorial Day!

It was a perfect day for the art fair yesterday. Round the Fountain is always a great show for me. Got a Purchase Award from Janet and Jerry Preuss, who have been supporting art fair for couple of decades. “Skinny Ankles”, watercolor on canvas.
I almost missed my flight in Paris, chasing this woman….with skinny ankles for a perfect shot.
