Young dancer in Gold Costume. The photo for this young dancing girl, caught in a moment of reflection and revery was snapped at my niece’s dance performance in 2008. The photo reference for the lavish restaurant interior was taken in Paris. Somehow I knew I just had to bring the two images together, her lovely gold dress and the rich French interior.

New to watercolor since a trip to Mexico in February, 2014, I am enjoying this new medium and exploring it in my own fearless way.
