These are my submissions for the January 2013 show at the
San Diego Watercolor Society.
This months theme is “New Beginnings”.
Playing in the Light
mini 5″x7″ – 8″x10″ framed
This small painting was done from a photo of my grandmother when she was a little girl. I love how she watches her shadow as she twirls her skirt in the light that streams in from behind her.
The First Day
regular 8″x10″ – 11″x14″ framed
This painting was done from an old photo I found of my great-grandmother on her first communion. I wanted to visually blur the line of the traditional commitment to God as a youth, and that of eventually becoming a bride to a man as a young woman.
