Joanne Porter: Floral and still life watercolors
Returning for another year, Joanne Porter's nature-inspired paintings will be on display during the month of September.
"As a floral painter, Joanne Porter prefers to work from fresh flowers rather than from photographs. When she starts a painting, Joanne imagines a slight breeze gently moving the pedals; she then tries to capture that movement in her composition. Using many layers of color, Joanne's intent is to convey the delicate feel of the flowers as well as their richness of color."
Saline Painters Guild
