#1296 Irina’s Sky. Watercolor collage on foamcore, 5×3.5″ matted to 7×5″ $25.
Irina’s sky has a story behind its name. D’s niece was adopted from the Ukraine and, being required upon adoption to take a middle name picked her Mom’s. One of the things she has commented on is that on cloudy days, it reminds her of where she grew up.
#1297 Serendipity. 3.5×5″ watercolor collage on foamcore, matted to fit 5×7″ frame. $25
Serendipity just came together so easily from a few pieces of collage that came to hand so easily I think they had been huddling in the box.
The last few days I’ve run two watercolor collage fun workshops. All, serendipitously with people who have art experience in other mediums, but thought they would pick up something useful from my workshop, and they did! It’s always fun to work with groups who have open minds as to what they want to achieve, whether or not they have prior creative experience of any kind.

Here are some photos taken by one of the other gallerists when I was teaching in Borrego Springs Art Institute on Tuesday. The three students, with varying levels of experience, all found they learned a lot from the class.
Students often feel more comfortable creating a color wheel when I am too. Yes, that apron does make me look fat, doesn’t it!
Just checking that she is painting off in the right direction. I am actually still** wearing my shorts behind the apron.
We don’t worry about exactly evenly spaced areas, but it’s important to get the right mixes in the right places.
