I was able to complete 2 more paintings. These are around the same size as the other 2. One is of the Maine coastline.The other one is of a potting shed in Windham, NH that was torn down shortly after I took the photo.

Now I need to figure out how to get that map back and into the right spot. (sigh)

Sidney Fine Art Show 2009
The frescoes are done by painting watercolour onto a board that has been covered with clay. It is similar to what was done centuries ago when artists painted on the walls. The paint was applied to wet plaster or clay. Therefore, my work is similar. I wet the clay and paint into it with the watercolour. The the surface is fixed with a spray and a clear acrylic coating to protect the painting. I am enjoying it immensely. My new series on the clayboard is of young girls in sunglasses.
It was nice to see so many watercolours at the show. When I first entered the show 2 years ago, there were very few watercolours chosen. But this time, wow! I couldn't believe how many there were. There was even watercolour on canvas, which is something I have been working on as well.
