Friday's Watercolor Class

Here's my "favorite" student of all! He is 93 years old, lives on Kauai part-time and comes to my classes once or twice a week when he is on island. Such a wonderful man with a very big heart! He has created several masterpieces since painting with me and is having many of them framed for his home. (I certainly hope to still be painting at 93!)
This young lady is showing us one of her latest watercolors (the heliconia) and also her first acrylic painting (the hibiscus) that she painted in a previous class. She is also one of my art class "regulars" and lives on Kauai full-time.

These two ladies dropped in for their first watercolor lesson last week after taking my silk painting class. One lives here full-time and the other in California (but frequently visits Kauai). Both are very artistic, and I really enjoyed "talking story" with them about art, Etsy, blogs, fabric art and more!!!
I am always amazed at what my students create in a single watercolor class! Mahalo to these very talented students and extremely nice people!

I love it Marionette! Your students are doing great work, and all look so thrilled.

One of my summer drawing students is 92. I want to be like her when I grow up!
