Inspired by Starrbaby Sorra




My apologies to the artist I got her painting upsidedown and sideways but I am not as uninhibited as she and my washes are only an approximation of her clear bright colors and sweeping gestural strokes -


I loved this post http://wistex1129.blogspot.com/2008/08/sorras-watercolor.html by Starr and was inspired to try my hand at a quick sketch - While cleaning the house today everytime I made a trip into my studio I added a little more - I still have two more bathrooms to do but this work is done!


Watercolor & watercolor pencil on canson paper. Thank you Starr & Sorra-

wow,this is beautiful. I love the color in it and you really captured the little girl! precious! And by the way, the scallops turned out delicious! Butter, minced garlic, blackening seasoning, and a little white wine. Yum! Thanks for the tips!

I am especially proud of my daughter-in-law Starr and my beautiful grandchild Sorra. I knew Starr was talented so, Miss Sorra is an added bonus. Thank you, Kathleen for doing this for them.
