This particular painting is a quick study I did - I was playing with one of my favorite combinations of watercolors - french ultramarine + winsor orange. When combined they make the most beautiful granulating violet. LOVE!

I ADORE traveling. Unfortunately, between my busy schedule and tight budget, I don't get to go nearly as much as I'd like to. One place I'd love to visit is the Louvre in Paris. So when I'm yearning for a trip, I'll get on Google Streetview and 'walk' around. I found this wonderful spot along the Seine and decided it must be painted - the Eiffel Tower, or as the French would say, 'La Tour Eiffel'. To learn how to say it, click here. Isn't it fun to try to learn to speak French? (For me, emphasis on TRY) ; )
This will go on eBay tonight at 10 PM Eastern here.

My summer is officially over - I work in a school as a social worker and it's time to go back; no more long days of painting! For fear of lack of time, I've been trying to finish up some equine paintings for a show in November. I've got two more that need finishing touches now that this one is done.
