raising money

 This is the second of two fundraisers in which I have participated---for the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, in Santa Barbara, CA.  Their fundraiser is called 5X5: Celebrating Five Years, and will be on view the first two weeks of September, 2014. This year I did several sketches in watercolor, sitting at the edge of a small, person-made pond in Suttons Bay, MI, after the fair, there--and painted the fish, reeds, and frogs (who came up onto the stones next to my feet and sat in the sun while I painted.  I had been given a 5"square of Rives BFK  paper, along with a stamped, hard cardboard envelope, in which I will mail back the finished work.  You should be able to click on the museum's name, above, and be able to go to their site and see more of the work!.
