Yupo Floral

This is my latest adventure I've been working on.  This floral is painted on Yupo paper.  Actually, it isn't paper, but a plastic surface that does not absorb any paint.  The paint "floats" on top of the surface until it dries.  This one's done in watercolor.  The fun thing about Yupo is you never quite know how the paint will dry.  It's a surface that causes you to keep coming back many times to re-wet and re-paint.  In the end, it has a much different quality than painting on regular paper.  Comments are always welcome!!!

Orange Pears

I'm trying to get caught up on my posts.  As usual, I'm behind.  This is the 2nd of the 3 different colored pear paintings we did in class.  Pears are so much fun to paint!  I'm currently working on some large Yupo watercolor paintings - so stay tuned.  I am working you know.

Pear Glow

This is the subject I used while teaching my beginning watercolor class.  I painted it several times in different colors.  This is the yellow green version.

"Retro Rouge" - SOLD

I've painted this room once before several years ago.  It's the upstairs portion of a French restaurant where we dined several times in Provence.  The public was downstairs, the room upstairs was bright, sunny and quiet.  The first time I painted it in oils, this time it's a watercolor.  It is currently on exhibit at Round Rock ArtSpace, 231 E. Main Avenue, Round Rock for the month of August.  Thank you Cathy for purchasing my painting for your home.  You're the BEST!!
