"Dedicated to Miss Laura"

Watercolor on Strathmore 140# cold press.  Original is 6 x 9.
This completes this series of portraits of my three lovely nieces!  How fun
it was.  I have found I am loving doing portraits, and want to keep learning
and improving on technique.

"Happy Birthday Colleen Jr"

How fun to do a stamping project again!  While I do love watercolor, 
I've been so deep into it that it was a nice to take a break and make a card!

At long last, the cover for my poetry art journal is finally finished.  It is a basic watercolor 
journal, 140# cold press.  For this cover, I used a combination of gesso, die cuts, stencils
and stencil paste, shimmering mist sprays, Adirondack reinkers, ribbon and gems.

"Dedicated to Miss Chloe"
It appears I am falling in love with doing portraits!  This is one of my nieces, 
and it looks just like her!  The challenge in a portrait is capturing that one
line or shadow that makes the the face "her", and her alone!  It is so exciting watching
the personality arrive, brushstroke by brushstroke.
