This water color painting was my first attempt at water colors. I usually do oil and acrylic. I took a class in Sedona, Arizona with a girl friend of thirty-five years. Penny Gupton is a well known artist from Hawaii and this was an opportunity to be with her again. I was frustrated and challanged at first as she refused to let me use any white paint for highlights. Knowing and saving the highlights from the beginning and not adding them at the end of creating this piece was a true challange.
