Branching Out – Solo Show

Last Friday at the White River Craft Center, in Randolph, VT I had my first solo gallery show! My 44 original watercolor and pen paintings will be hanging until February 8th.

Proof File

The paintings that are up range from an old barn door, dried koas corn, birch trees and dead beech leaves. The sizes range from 4″x4″ up to 24″x30″ larger pieces. It took me a while to get all my pieces painted and together. My husband Alex made the oak and maple frames to fit my watercolors mounted on wood panels. Which made them look awesome!

I am so excited that people are interested in my work, and love when people like it. The weather was horrible the night of the opening reception, but still a lot of people came out to see my show. Thanks so everyone who came out to support me and my dream, I really appreciate it!

Lyme, NH Birches

Here is a look at my Lyme, NH birches watercolor. When I paint I use real trees to paint from, I learn something new from each tree I paint. I like to know that these trees are out there, and that I happened to stumble upon them. This piece is 6″x12″, mounted on wood panel & has an oak frame made by Alex. I am so excited that this piece sold at the Quechee Balloon Festival this year. This is one of my favorite pieces I have ever done!
