Roses #2 Watercolor Painting

  Roses #2 watercolor painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.  Walking on the beach yesterday with my dog I came upon wild roses - white and red - blooming the length of the beach in the sand.  My goal in this painting was to capture the light on these beauties.   Some good news in the children book illustrations - just signed a contract for book number four Heal of the Hand which is a story about healing, specifically the earthquake in Haiti, written by Kiki Latimer.   Book number three, I'll Always Be There , written by Jennifer Cowar t, is with the publisher/designer and will be coming out in print shortly.    Don 't hurry. Don't worry.  You're only here for a short visit.  So don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
