I am getting closer to accomplishing my goal.... 100 bugs and then writing a children's book.
I am at bug 72.... and counting.
Here are five new ones! They are more colorful and compositional than the the others.
I am challenging myself to be the "most" creative with the final 28-- so that the collection really SINGS!
Stay tuned for more-- and stay tuned for news about the exhibition and children's book in the works.

I have been working on 100 Bugs for the past few weeks. The project stemmed out of my Holiday show. It's been gathering steam-- both in life and online. I am up to 55 bugs and counting!
I will be having a show of them this spring. I am also planning a book and deck of flash cards. Also perhaps playing cards.
Stay tuned and see more~~

Holiday Open Studio
The open studio on Friday was a huge success! There were 200 people that came through the studio during the afternoon/evening.
Sales were brisk.... with over half of the smaller paintings leaving for private collections.
It was a fun time... complete with hot apple cider, wine, and holiday cookies.
Thank you to everyone for coming-- you made the evening special!
If anyone is interested in the remaining smaller, affordable original watercolors remaining-- please email me or visit my other blog for images.
A beautiful workshop in Ann Arbor Michigan
Last week was spent in Ann Arbor Michigan -- teaching 12 students my approach to watercolor.
It was a lively, special time-- and LOTS of great painters!
They were all execeptional -- and accomplished the projects in record time -- and together as a group. There was great cohesion to the group-- and we all learned a variety of technique.
Thank you to everyone for coming-- and especially to Debra Zamperla for organizing the event.
Ann Arbor Rocks!
