H quilt in Fall Scene

"Big H in Fall Morning" 10x13.5 watercolor on paper
I did this for our challenge for months of Sept-Oct. The challenge is "quilt". I wanted to not fall into a tight one despite the subject and hopefully still be able to convey the lovely variety of colors and patterns on a quilt.

This is based on my best friend Hillary. She speent a week with us 2 fall seasons ago, all the way from California. Well she has always been so loving to visit me just about anywhere I move because she probably misses her sushi and art buddy lol Ok it doesn't have to be sushi, it can be ANY food but most likely exotic. Ok it didn't have to be exotic, it could just be a burger in some greasy spoon -- AS LONG AS IT'S FOOD! lol

I made this H-quilt for her, a timely gift for her visit :)

Do visit her blog as she is posting an excellent silk painting demo!

Poseidon was the God of the sea, earthquakes and horses. He was a virile God, fathering many children. He was also moody and could be difficult, causing storms and earthquakes, wrecking ships and drowning men.

St. Francis of Assisi ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache, 2008.
Saint Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals, the enviroment and Italy. He founded the Order of the Friars Minor, or Franciscans. One of the legends of his life is that one day, while travelling, he happened on a road where the birds filled the trees. He stopped to preach to them and the birds surrounded him and seemed to listen to him, rather than fly away.
