I really enjoyed coming to the opening reception to just wander and look at the other work, eat pupus and mingle with other artists.Read More

All inclusive Color Bridges Workshop April 12

I hear some of the same comments by some who think watercolor is hard and I wish I could erase from the vernacular. Like “watercolor is so hard, it’s the hardest medium” and “watercolor doesn’t last, it fades not like oils”.
