Remembering a friend

"Phae" 5"x 7"
Recently a friend lost her cat, her beloved friend of over twenty years, and asked if I would paint her cats picture from a photo of when she was younger and in good health. She was pleased with this painting. "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" Anatole France

Good news to share with you

"Foggy Island Bridge", watercolor, won 3rd place in the Peninsula Art Association's Annual Spring Show.

I've neglected to share with you this good news. I was so surprised and excited to find I had won 3rd place in the watercolor division of the Spring Show. This year the show was located in a larger building and had great lighting. It was well attended and I think this new location will be one that the organizers of the show try to use for next years show.
