This is a commission piece I did for a client a few years ago. He wanted a watercolor done of his cabin but it was so surrounded by trees that I had to climb a huge tree in order to photograph it. This little shed of his was so lovely, I took several photos of it and he decided he would like to have a painting of this instead of the cabin. I did think it was a great adventure to climb a tree which I hadn't done since I was a little girl. I believe my camera lens cover is still up there somewhere balanced on a branch. Or maybe some crow came along and snatched it up thinking it a wonderful treasure. Here's another favorite artist of mine, Carl Larsson.

I absolutely love your watercolor art! You are so gifted :) This is beautiful, when I see your work it gives me strength and motivates me to continue in my art. You have a style that I am not familiar with and it is refreshing. I'm going to look at the artist that you linked to tomorrow :)
