Birthday Bouquet and Reception Coming Up

"Birthday Bouquet"
15" x 22"
Watercolor

Bob's daughter gave him a fascinating cut bouquet for his birthday on October 8. The twigs had small gourds in green and orange and looked so Fall festive. Jamie suggested that I might like to paint the bouquet. I started a few weeks ago, before heading off to Santa Fe and then leading a workshop. My Thursday night South Side Art Club was down to two of us painting at my home last night. I did quite a bit of work on this piece and then finished it up this afternoon (well, give me a few days of eyeballing it in passing and I will likely make adjustments). The setting is entirely imaginary, befitting a birthday boy.

If you are in the area, please join me for the reception on the Santa Cruz Wharf tomorrow between 2 and 6. There will be some nice art, three artists, good company, accompanied by appetizers and wine. You will be treated to million dollar views from Vino Prima.

I love it Mary! The transparency of the glass is well done and the colors are beautiful.
Wish I could join you at the reception. Have fun!

Thanks, Pam. Wish you could have been at the reception. Several friends said they would return to Vino Prima because it is just a lovely spot on the pier.
