Poured Watercolor on 10" x 11" Paper
I was holding my breath hoping that she liked what I did. I find it hard to do a "commission". As an artist I see things differently, and even among artists I can sometimes be out in left field as to how I approach subjects. Reminds me of a story of a plein air workshop up a local canyon. There was 8 or 9 of us. We were all out in the open air with our easels set up kind of in a row. As the teacher went along... mountains, evergreen trees, quaking aspens... all along different perspectives or scenes but all basically the same. The she gets to me... water pump and a hose! We are out in the middle of all this glorious scenery and I'm enamored with a water pump and a hose. Hello!? The teacher looked at me, shook her head and said," Jeanne, you are definitely a different bird!"
