New Thoughts about Painting

Exciting News

Hi there , I have had some excitement here. Three of my paintings this one “Dakota Pride”  are included in a new book  Best Watermedia Artists of America. I also have two other paintings included.  In this watercolor I used watercolor pencil to draw out a grid as an irregular fence.  I painted the buffalo into it and used the grid to scrub out shapes or  change colors.  I did some etching with the watercolor pencils and painted over it— a cool  effect.  I just received my book last week and it looks great!

I have been working hard to create new watercolors  and acrylics for the art crawl for the upcoming weekend October 2-3.  Their is more information under events on my website

I have several pieces almost finished.  Four acrylics on canvas and four watercolors.  This is a very challenging phase of painting.  I did however sit down with my journal and make decisions regarding the direction I would like these paintings to take.  I feel good about my plans and hope to show you some new paintings soon.

Sincerely, Ellen
