It's amazing

It's funny the way you cannot see problem areas when you first finish a painting, but just put it on the computer and errors are screaming at you.  Need to fix this...

Forgot to post this piece with the announcement it got an honorable mention at the member's show at the Watercolor Society of Houston.  Big opening as there were something like 120 pieces juried in the show.  An honor to get an award. 

Back from Dallas

These are paintings I did in the Ted Nuttall workshop.  I find he paints way too slow for me, I sim;ly cannot put things down that slowly.  However seem to have my own style, so maybe just need to go with that.

Canvas piece

This piece is really difficult to photograph, as it has gold gesso as the base.  it reflects light back into the camera.
This piece was accepted into the members show at The Watercolor Society.  It also has alot of gold and doesn't photograh very well.  I doubt that it will place or even get an honorable mention as it is not a traditional watercolor.  Lately, it seems the very traditional work is on the winner's wall.
