Quite a last minute reminder I know, but I will be doing a demo of watercolor on yupo paper today at the International Museum of Art on Montana Street during “Elevate your Art” an afternoon of fun from 1-5 today to raise funds to repair this historic building’s elevator.

    I love this! Iris really lend themselves to loose yupo and this is a terrific rendering. Sorry to miss the event today and your demo. Richard delivered my donated painting while I was in the hospital, so at least I got that done. I’m feeling much better but need to be on limited activity until I see the doctor tomorrow. Hopefully will get stitches out and maybe be cleared to drive later this week.

    See you soon I hope.

    • Thanks Karen!! Yupo seems to be perfect for ruffly petals of flowers. I think I’ll try a sunset today. I’m so glad to hear that you’re feeling much better. yay!! I’m looking forward to seeing your donation, and everyone’s to be sure. I hope we can go out for coffee and catch up when you’re up and out.
