I don't think I've ever posted art by another artist on my blog before, but I am very happy to introduce an artist near and dear to my heart, my daughter - Wendolyn Nelson.   She is an art major in her last year of college.  I always enjoy the freedom of her work!   So, I'm sharing it with you!    I hope you enjoy!

Ready to mat and frame

Well, this month is just flying by - and its always one of the busiest months of the year. 
As a high school teacher - there is the semester to bring to a close, final projects to grade, students to prod, graduation and year end activities, and year end stuff which must be done. 
I have not had enough time to work in my studio, so... 
I'm reposting some older posts!    

This one is an interesting use of color in a very broken style of application, which gives a textural feel and allows the eye to blend color!   
This one is ready to mat and frame.  

email Helen for more information or if you would like to add some matting.

Morning Market

Morning Market - Jerusalem Bazaar, 8x10" watercolor/ink on paper

ready to mat and frame 

(please add $10.00 shipping in US, IL residents please add 8.25% sales tax)


This painting is somewhat different than a my typical subject matter, but I was challenged by the Virtual Paintout blog to go w/Google street view to Jerusalem and paint something from that area.
I was attracted to the colorful textiles and items in the marketplace!  I also like the shapes and geometry of the street.   I hope you'll enjoy this view of the market place!
