Pink Lady, window

Watercolor on paper. This is one of two pieces that I'm submitting for the members' show in December at our cooperative gallery in Eureka CA. The theme chosen was "structures in Eureka". Unfortunately, I was not there to cast my vote. I don't usually do "structures", and don't enjoy it as much a people, so I did them and got them finished well ahead of time.

There is a very famous Victorian Mansion in Eureka called the Carson Mansion and directly across the street, Mr. Carson built another, smaller Victorian as a wedding present for his son. That one is called The Pink Lady. This is just a detail from her.

About Susan Harper

Hmm, bio:  Let's see.  I've lived a considerable time, so it's hard to know where to begin.  I'm originally from San Francisco, married, raised four kids, have 8 grand kids, still married to the same sweet baboo living on the North West coast of California near Humboldt State U.  I've done some kind of art work all my life, but didn't start to paint until late 2007.  Artists often comment on how hard watercolor is, so I thought, "What the heck. How about I take the challenge".  And whaddya know!  Who woulda  thunk it?  I took to watercolor like a duck takes to, uh, water.  So, as a senior citizen  I'm just beginning a new career. To tell you the truth, I never set out to sell any paintings, just to learn.  That all happened in spite of me.  Now I often don't have anything to put up for sale, because I do commission work and it's gone before it's painted.  I'm hoping to get some inventory built up, but my style of painting requires a good deal of time.
