'Taking a Break"
20" x 28"

This has long been a favorite of mine and I have attempted to get a final "good" painting. This was my fifth try in 5 years.
I guess the persistence paid off. The painting was awarded both the President's Award and the Morton Baslaw Award.
Morton Baslaw is Ottawa's most well known wc artist. He has taught thousands of artists the in's and outs of watercolours, both at the Ottawa School of Art and evening courses. He was also the founder of the Ottawa Watercolour Society many years ago.
This is the 2nd time I have been given this pleasure. I'm delighted to say the least.

"Cross Country"

20" x 28"

At an art festival in Manotick a few months back, a painting I had sold was admired by one of  my previous purchasers. I was asked if I would do something along the same lines....but bigger. "Surprise me" she said.
