"Watercolor Lily"
At our painting group, one of the artists brought two lilies, 
and they were so beautiful I couldn't resist taking a photo, 
and painting them. The background was done with crinkled plastic 
wrap.  So very fun!

"Dew Drop"
Original watercolor art on Arches 140# cold press.

Upon leaving "the Land of Possibilities", we observed how beautiful the
early morning dew sparkled on the foliage.  One particular dew drop
appeared to be more shiny and bright, and seemed to brim with life!
 Looking deep into the tiny droplet, we saw a little child, happily playing on the
beach by the ocean!  A whole ocean in a dew drop - imagine that! 
We reluctantly left this magical land, vowing one day to return...

"Iris Fairy"
Back in "The Land of Possibilities", darkness of night had fallen.  
We stumbled upon a patch of large, beautiful Irises.  
Each one had a bright light shining from inside.  
Upon looking closely, we saw the tiniest of fairies.  
Barely two inches tall!  She told us secrets!  
She said she was shining light, peace, love and hope for all the world!  
We left feeling very happy!

This watercolor is a study in reflections.  The motivation came
from a tropical scene in a techniques book of lessons.

Nothing is more beautiful than the play of reflections on water.
I think painting water and it's reflective qualities is one of my
most satisfying watercolor projects!  I hope you enjoy!
