"Sanctuary 2"
watercolor and ink on paper
8 x 8 inches
Another watercolor class sample for the auburn hills JoAnn's store.

A study in glazing and mingling color.

Going with my gal pals to the Snowflake Ball at Addison Oaks ballroom this evening. My husband has a hockey game (he's an assistant at Lake Orion Varsity Hockey) so I bugged my friends to make it a girls night out. I'm sure we'll have a great time. It's the Orion Art Center's big fund raiser... so we'll have fun, and support a good cause.

It's almost 50 degrees here... The air smells so good!!!

it was a gorgeous day out - and sounds like you have a nice night planned too! we were going to go to the Snowflake Ball but some unexpected expenses came about, and we decided to stick at home with a 6 pack. just not the same.

hope you had a great time!! :)

Hi Kim!
It was a lot of fun... Nicely crowded in this economy. Some of my friends got great bargains in the silent auction. The band was really good too. If this durn cold I've had, had left a bit earlier... we probably would have made spectacles of ourselves with our dancing... As it was, I wasn't quite up to it! :)

I really like this one...all the greens and the crisp white. Feels a bit like spring is in the air today, and your watercolor reflects that hopefulness. Very nice.

I like you landscape, most fitting for the title!

Thanks Debra and Peggy...
This is the second time I've used this composition... Composed from a photo from Wet Canvas Image Library.. What a wealth of painting inspirations there! I think it will make a nice easy painting project for beginning students. Hopefully some will sign up!
