Above is the newspaper spread when our group went out to paint this beautiful building before it was torn down last spring to make way for highway construction.  Yours truly happened to be in the right place at the right time, and it was on my birthday weekend to boot!

Gone But Not Forgotten: Globe Mills plein air watercolor

Here’s the painting that I did plein air (in the open air, not in the studio) that is framed to 18″ x 22″ and the bidding starts at $140. All proceeds go to benefit public TV in our community. I hope you can tune in and bid!

KCOS Auction: Red Bird of Paradise

2015_red_bird_of_paradise_rachel_murphree_watercolors

Red Bird of Paradise. Original in private collection but prints and cards available.

I’m excited to announce that I will have a piece of art in the KCOS auction to benefit our local PBS station.  I’ve been a member of the El Paso Art Association for over a decade, and every year I got the call or letter, asking for art donations.  With my hectic life raising kids and all that entails, I never had work to offer.  But this year was different!  so exciting…

The auction will be held next Saturday and Sunday on Channel 13, and you can preview all the art and see the time it will be auctioned at their site.

Red Bird of Paradise will be up for auction on Saturday, April 16th from 3-3:30.  The starting bid is $60.  I hope you can tune in to support this great cause!
