2013 watercolor painting for Garden Walk
This year's poster for our annual Park Hill Garden Walk 2013! Each year I have some sort of bucolic vision of what I want the brand to feel like. This year, however, I didn't have something pictured. So I perused my photos and found this one of a window in Venice, Italy and decided that was the look I wanted for our Garden Walk this year. So, Voila! There are homes in this neighborhood with a Juliette balcony and pots galore in many homes so I'm not too far from reality!

Paper Doll Ballerina

I am still in love with making my paper brides which, by the way, will be featured in Art Doll Quarterly's June 2013 issue but I needed to try another silhouette -the ballerina.

Here is my first ballerina drawn from a newspaper article about a ballet which was in Denver recently!
