in the window of the Art Gallery, advertising our Members' Show. They used my 1st place painting in the bottom leaf of the design. What I thought was interesting, is that reflected in the glass, was the town of Milford and me taking the photo.

Fall has started early this year and it has inspired me to do this this painting.

Playing around on my computer and tried a sepia version. Thought it came out good!

The lilies were so beautiful this year!

This year we got our first harvest of Asparagus and I was really excited because we planted them a couple of years ago and never got anything but ferns. This year I weeded the bed because I put in some Black-eyed Susy. Low and behold, we got a bunch of Asparagus. Maybe the weeds hid them and they were there all along.

I also planted some Sweet Peas and harvested some of them too. They looked so good that I just had to paint them.

They made a yummy omelet!

My first attempt of painting watercolor on Yupo Paper. I've used this plastic coated paper with acrylics, but it's very different with watercolor. I will play with it some more.

Painting watercolor on Yupo paper has turned out to be an adventure and a half. You have to pretty much capture everything on your first layer. You can go back, but water changes and takes up that first layer. While acrylic paint dries and can't be lifted, watercolor paint can....even if you don't want it to. So this is my second attempt at it.

This is another one I tried later.

At the end of our last class of "Watercolor with Jean", I started a demo on how to paint daffodils. I didn't have time to complete it and took it home to finish. I posted it on FB and want to post it here as well.

Did this one later at home, just for the fun of it.

Working on some new ideas for my next class. I think I will have to divide the class, because some just continue a project from class to class, while others work at home and want to try something new each week. So the new will be a landscape with pine trees. Worked on this one at home and will see where the class leads me from here.

This is a painting that I started as a demo in class and finished at home.

I was looking for the start of a new project for my next watercolor class and I decided to do a flower. Looking over my archive of flowers, I decided to do another painting of Calla Lilies. There is so much to teach while painting these beautiful flowers. In order to teach it, I had to do a painting myself, so it would give me directions in my teaching.

I love painting these wonderful white flowers with their broad, fond green leaves, and am enthralled with their beauty.

A photographer friend posted a photo she took. She put the call out to anyone who wished to paint it. It had a lovely sky and I thought it would be a good example for my next class.

I just learned I will have four new students in my next class for a total of eight. I had planned to teach painting skies for my first class of the next season. I have been experimenting with a few paintings as examples and this is one of them.

It's always interesting when you have no idea who the new students are and how much they know about watercolor. You have to be able to teach at all levels and it's always a challenge.
