I was invited to Middle East about 6 years ago, I was very nervous. I had so many preconceptions because of what I heard in the news. But upon my arrival to Muscat, Oman I was shocked, I found myself in another world of incredibly beauty. In my mind I felt like I was sitting on a magic carpet viewing an incredible culture. The brilliant warmth of the sun was intoxicating. The city is full of color and shining whiteness that extends to architecture. The houses and buildings look like an illustration of Arabian Nights, balconies and parapets carved into stone filigree, doorways and windows ornately arched. And the people were beautiful too so I had to paint what I felt.
My new studio is open and we no longer paint in my kitchen. I have set up a dedicated room for 8 students at a time and another room for art equipment. It has great lighting. See pictures above.
Entered the Minneasota Watercolor Society Show, hydro+dynamics 2015 MNWS SPRING EXHIBITION at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts. Should hear by Feb. 21 if I got accepted. Below is the painting I entered. It is my sister's children posing with soldiers in Hui, Vietnam. The show opens 3/12 with opening reception (6-8pm; awards at 7) and closes Thu, 4/9.
In celebration of Martin Luther King Day, on Jan. 19, IOCP held a Welcome Baby Celebration.

One Mother, One Baby at a Time
As a Watercolor Artist, I find my inspiration in the beauty of people, communities and the uniqueness of what nature offers to us if we take a moment to look for it. I had the unique opportunity to develop a painting for Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners (IOCP) in Plymouth, MN to capture and reflect the incredible beauty of mothers and children. I have painted in watercolors for over 30 years and learned this very technical art form from my artist mentor Kay White who studied under the well-known artist Edgar Whitney.
