LAVONNE RICE-GORDON WATERCOLORS
"This is done from a photograph of my granddaughter when she was about three; her father flew out here on a business trip and she came with him. He arrived with his hard hat in one hand and her in the other. We spent three wonderful days getting acquainted:)

I have always been drawn to the creative process whether it be drawing, painting, quilting, gardening or cooking.
Oils were the first painting medium that I tried; then I moved on to pen and ink and pastels. Currently I work primarily in watercolor.
My goal is to set the stage and allow the spontanious qualities of the paint, water and paper to happen. " Easier said than done", I might add.
One of Amanda's early drawings. I have started studying the development of creativity in the book, Drawing on the Right Side of your Brain by Betty Edwards. Children seem to easily draw what they want to say.

SHEEPHERDER'S MONUMENT n/c
watercolor / framed / 18"x30" / YAM 43rd Art Auction
This sheepherder's monument I have known about for a long time. I have been told that they are also referred to as Johnnie rocks. Several explanations exist as to why the sheepherders built them; boredom, a marker for water or a vantage point where one could manage a band of sheep with a couple good sheep dogs.
