    Out of all the subjects one might paint, perhaps the most challenging is people.   You can misplace a branch on a tree, but an arm, leg or eye need to be in the right spot!
    The paintings in this grouping were completed in my Michigan and Florida studios from photographs I took.
    Children make delightful subjects, and I take a lot of shots of them to save for later paintings.  Cousins is a watercolor of two of my grandchildren who held hands as they walked down a nature trail in Florida.  I took a photo, and thought the scene so charming I just had to paint it. 
   Wayne with Hat  is a watercolor I painted of my husband from a photo I took of him on a trip to Key West.   He had just purchased the hat at one of the numerous gift shops on the island.
