August 20, 2021 – Sold! At the Old Bakery and Emporium (across from the State Capital) Austin, Texas – ala Monet, Girl with Umbrella

Like a minor but very welcome miracle, a faint rainbow, or even a tiny prayer that surfaces in one’s heart unexpectedly, I sold my small 5×7 watercolor, Girl with Umbrella on panel at the Old Bakery and Emporium which just reopened in July!

Varnished and painted on Golden’s absorbent ground, Girl with Umbrella was a joy to create, modeling my efforts off of, along with Renoir, Monet – one of my life long favorite artists!

Now I have the very pleasant chore of choosing a replacement, and hopefully delivering it either late this week or early next! 😊

This image was my most viewed on Fine Art America one of the weeks earlier in May this year ♥️

Hopefully I can get some new pics of the ongoing Old Bakery’s re-opening.

Stay well everyone! Booster shots are coming and hopefully the heat is nearing it’s finish!
