We cut off a branch of a cotton plant one day, which I used as a reference to paint this. My grandfather ended up in Selma, AL, over 100 years ago when he was buying cotton for England. So Selma and cotton will forever be tied together in my mind.
11x14, $135, watercolor

This one is one I did from the first iris of spring after a long winter full of many traumatic changes. I was feeling hopeful and at peace with the changes when this iris bloomed while it was still cold and dreary out. I brought it inside and drew it, then added color. Watercolor and colored pencil, 11x14. $75 matted and ready for a frame.

I painted this one with some friends (and with my mom) on a plein air trip in Huntsville, AL. These irises were gorgeous! My painting doesn't do them justice. 8x10" matted size. $45.

I did this small painting last year when we first moved into a much smaller house than the one we were in. I was sad about having to put most of our things into storage, and decided to create a wreath for the front door for some color and cheer. Then I painted it! Matted 8"x10", $45.

I have a friend who loves beekeeping. She's asked me to paint bees for a while, now, and I finally got a good photo to use as a reference. This was painted on a 6"x6" square of clayboard, which is very slick. It's fun, but it doesn't behave like watercolor paper!

Last May I traveled with several friends to the coast of Florida for an international plein air event. We who traveled together weren't part of the participating artists- we went to watch them paint! It was a GREAT time of fun and fellowship, and we got to see some fantastic artists do wonderful things with their craft. I also took a ton of photos, and this painting is from one of those photos taken at a marina down there.
