People watching

This was a quick watercolor sketch to plan out a painting for a lady. I love what happens when you have no expectations. I showed this to the gal and she loved it too! Jackpot!

Susie - Church Lady #7

Susie  is the mother of a real rock star and has an addiction to traveling the world. Every day on her lunch break she walks from downtown Salt Lake City to the U of U. She is a dear friend.

Page - church lady

This is Page, an artist from Virginia. She collects remnants from our history and creates beautiful art to honor our pioneer women. I am honored to include her in my project.

Mosianna is the closest thing there is to an angel. She raised 10 wonderful children while sewing garments at the Beehive Clothing Mill.  She was always smiling and always had her grandchildren near by . She passed away 2 years ago, but she will always be remembered.

Self portrait

I painted a self portrait in the same style as my forgotten wives to use when I show my collection.
