Field Trip

Every December I take my class on a "field trip" to a local garden center (Quality Gardens) to paint pointsettias. It is so lovely in the green house, full of color, texture and warmth on a cold day. While I was painting this demonstration one of the employees told me the type of pointsettia I was painting was called "Monet." How appropriate!!!
8x10 inches, watercolor

This is just lovely, and you painted it so effortlessly. I am awestruck with your talent! I hope I can someday be as confident and accomplish such beautiful pieces.
