I recently finished this painting from a beautiful photo from my friend, Deb Holmes.  She is a wonderful photographer and she generously shares her work with me.  I am going to use this painting as a lesson for my adult watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  I hope they enjoy painting it as much as I have.

Watercolor Class Explores Abstraction

 Back: Cindy Staples; Molly Kohut; Dave McNeal; Front: Misty Steinke; Janice Belgiovane

Back: Lea; Terry Nelson; Elaine Mikesell; Sandy Davis; Rose Hawkins;

Last night, my watercolor class worked in abstraction.  The subject was a water lily and as you can see, there are not any two alike.  I think they had a lot of fun...we plan to finish next week.  I am so lucky...this is such a great group!
