Birthday Celebrations

I was blessed with two birthday cakes this year; the first was a delicious mandarin orange cake which I posted on my Facebook page, and the second was this delicious harlequin/checkerboard chocolate and yellow cake baked by my dear friend Rose for our Muses Thursday afternoon arts gathering.  It was truly delicious and we had a lot of fun finding out how Rose did this.  Turning 77 hasn't been as traumatic as I thought it would be.

This is the latest painting I have prepared for my class,  Riverside Art Center Watercolorists!
I told them recently that they have graduated from Intermediate.

This painting is done from a clipping one of my students brought home from Delaware (the state, not the city.)  She knows that I love vintage trucks and the class enjoys painting them too.  It is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper and is totally transparent watercolor.
