Happy summer, everyone!

I've been teaching and painting this summer. Along the way, I've been doing more work with water-soluble media, such as watercolor pencils, water-soluble markers, and "Sketch & Wash" pencils. I have so much fun with these tools. More and more water-soluble products, like crayons, are coming out. I encourage you to check them out and experiment.

I've added a few watercolor pencil paintings plus a couple watercolor with pen & ink paintings to the site. 

What's Next?
I'm working on a new card series (done in watercolor and pen & ink) with lilies. My dear friend, Kathy Blankenburg, grows the most beautiful lilies of all colors in her marvelous garden. I hope to have the card series done and ready for sale at the end of the year.

As an artist, I feel like I need to keep trying new forms of art and new media. I've been painting with acrylics and have a couple ideas for sculptures. These are purely experimental for now, but I'll see what happens.

I hope you have a relaxing and temperate summer. We've been boiling up here in Door County.

Cheers,
Maren
