Little Girl, Big Hat

11"x 15" Watercolor on 300 lb Paper

This little girl was an onlooker at last year's skipjack races. She was standing on a bulkhead at the shore with her parents or maybe her grandparents nearby when I snapped a photo. She had been a bit sunburned from the previous day and was wearing this very large hat - probably not her choice but her grandmother's. I thought she was absolutely adorable and was sure I'd want to paint her some day and here it is!

Student Exhibit at Delmarva Discovery Center

Amazed at My Student's First Art Exhibit

The Delmarva Discovery Center had its Grand Opening on June 25th. Among all of the museum exhibits and displays and in the middle of all the festivities, the Center's first student art exhibit was taking place. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience to see many of my students mingling with the crowd, enjoying the reaction and enthusiasm for the many paintings they had on display. Most of the work submitted was by students at the beginner level. You can imagine, I felt sort of like a proud parent taking it all in! Thanks to the Center for its commitment to the art program and to my wonderful students for stepping out onto a brand new stage! More to come! Thanks to student, Jan Coulbourne for allowing me to digitally "play" with her photo.
