I just listed some new items in my Etsy shop. They are reproductions of several varieties of caladiums that I painted in watercolor. This one is my favorite - Miss Muffet variety. I loved painting these! The colors were fun to blend and fuse.

I also painted on Duncan and Tucker's portraits today. They are looking nice! Will post when completed, and after delivery to their family.

Thank you, Rahina, and I enjoyed looking around on your blog also. Lovely paintings! I hope you'll stop and visit often. I'm working on a portrait commission which I will post when it's done and delivered to the family.

Becky,
Your Caladiums are simply "to die for" gorgeous! They look so real! I love your work so much. What an awesome talent you have! I must give you one of my Lovely Blog Awards that I received. You can go to my blog later this afternoon to see what I'm talking about!
