Art Openings

"Florida Holly Robins" in Watercolor

I attended the opening last night for "Art by the Sea" at the Vero Beach Art Museum.  I am not a big fan of crowds, especially at an art show.  The show is sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club and was well attended!  Bringing my husband is never a good idea...I am the only artist on earth in his eyes and he is much happier at home with the TV!  Needless to say,  I took a quick tour and ended up using my purse as a weapon to hit a local artist's wine and spill it down her shirt.  She laughed it off and we are still friends!  I think I will go back when it's quiet and I can really look at the art.  No sale of my watercolor tonight, but I am honestly happy to keep it and hang it in my house for awhile!

Out with a Bark

I have been busy painting these last few months and not enough of writing my blog!  So, here are a few of my recent painting commissions.  Sometimes a "picture" is better than words anyway!

Florida Holly Robins Watercolor

I just finished this watercolor on Aquaboard of Robins I happened to see a while back in a local tree here in Florida.  I was doing a morning walk and saw a huge flock enjoying the red berries in a Brazilian Pepper tree, also know as the Florida Holly.  They must have stopped on their way back north for a quick snack.  I enjoyed working on the aquaboard and am entering the painting in the upcoming "Art by the Sea" show sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club.  It is held at the amazing Vero Beach Art Museum.
