White Pitcher with Peaches

I finished this watercolor recently - as you can see I am having trouble painting with my bad shoulder so the background is a lot looser than I intended.  Instead of fighting with it I decided just to leave it alone.  It isn't something that I will show, that is for sure!!! lol  It IS good to paint though, even though the work is not what I am happy with.

The "Muses" Christmas Party

We had the Muses' Christmas Party at the home of Barbara Pelly in Cridersville.  We had a lovely time, especially because Theresa was able to join us - it has been so long for her recovery from her automobile accident...she has a way to go yet and we all are praying for her speedy recovery.

We had delicious Chicken a la King, wonderful salad and dessert.  Following the repast we enjoyed opening presents.  We are looking forward to all being together when Theresa gets back from Florida in the spring.

Nova Scotia Lighthouse

I stopped teaching my watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta a couple months ago.  I sure miss my watercolor family. Unfortunately my shoulder problems have not improved very much.  I am painting, still, but on a very minimal basis compared to what I was doing.  

This was the last lesson I taught.  It is 9"x12" transparent watercolor painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Arches.
