WASCO Aqua Areas

Another art event this last month happened at Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa…the annual WASCO Aqua Areas juried watercolor show.  I submitted three paintings.  This one sold before the show was even juried.

Unfurling Beauty, sold at the PVH show last month.

The second, Grace, sold during the show (it’s in a earlier blog…the swan in the sunrise picture).  The third entry has sold since the show.

Yummy, watercolor painting

Needless to say, I am one very grateful artist. 
Rob and I are off to New York next week.  There’s an exhibit of Van Gogh’s “light” paintings, like Starry Night, at the MOMA.  Can’t wait to see them.  I just finished “The Yellow House” about the six weeks that Gauguin and Van Gogh lived together, and I’m in the middle of one about Manet, Morisot, Degas and Cassatt…I’m ready to look at, not just read about, art and to be inspired even more!

  2. Marilee, What a surprise of the heART to visit your site. I am inspired beyond words with your work and added you immediately to my blog. Thank you, thank you. See you soon, with love, Gayle
