Featured Painting: "COURTSHIP"
This original watercolor painting is called "Courtship". It was inspired several springs ago when unusually torrential rains brought a carpet of blooms to the Anza-Borrego Desert in Southern California. In the middle of what is mostly a barren desert, the air was abuzz with bees. The cactus were wooing their prospective pollen bearers with a glorious display of showy blossoms...
It is painted on Arches 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper with professional quality Grumbacher watercolor paints. The image is 14 x 20" and is matted in off-white in a standard 22" by 28" size, ready for framing.
