close up of campbell pottery entry

Here is a close up view of my entry in the Campbell Pottery Lily festival art show.  It is done in watercolor and colored pencil. Hope you like it!
It has been very warm and dry here lately and it has been a challenge to keep the flowers and vegetables watered enough. The butterflies have been visiting my flowers though, along with the hummingbirds. I love summer!

Campbell Pottery opening reception

First of all I would like to thank everyone that came to see me today at the Campbell Pottery Lily festival opening reception!I appreciate all your support. Here is a picture of me with my artwork that made it in this year.It is entitled, "red, white, and crystal".It is made using watercolor and colored pencil on black matboard. This year's show is full of amazing works and well worth the trip to see it. It runs until August 12th. The only thing missing this year, was my Dad. He was here with me last year , but is now in a nursing home and not doing real well.
