I am so excited that fall is almost here. We have had our share of hot and humid weather and lots of rain. During this time, I have been building inventory for the busy season ahead as well as working on House Portraits commissions.Another project that I have been working on is a watercolors of City Park’s Storyland which will be sold in the Botanical Garden shop in the fall.
I went to the Quarter today and walked down Royal Street and checked on some of shops that carry my prints, cards and canvases. Papier Plume is such a neat shop to visit with beautiful fountain pens, and writing instruments. They like to sell my watercolor cards since these cards take the ink very well, plus they are a great souvenirs from New Orleans or are perfect for framing. (All paintings on my site I can turn into cards, just email me and ask) I also stopped at the Great Artists Collective which is a fun little gallery with lots of different art from many artists. I have a small corner filled with my NOLA watercolors.
I am excited to let everyone know that I was selected as one of the 5 featured artists at the Crescent City Brewhouse. My work will be featured there from August 30 – September 28. Please come out and see my work!
Crescent City Brewhouse is located at 527 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70130
My new watercolor painting is very large and loose, as I am always trying to step out of the box with my painting.
