My Watercolor Featured on new Eureka Springs School of the Arts T-Shirt

Eureka Springs School of the Arts

Eureka Springs School of the Arts

Several months ago, I was moved deeply at the words of a beautiful letter from the President of the Board of the Eureka Springs School of the Arts.  She was expressing admiration for the watercolor above that she now owns, and was asking me in the letter if I had objections to its being used on a T-Shirt promoting the School.  Of course I had no objections; I was honored that they would use the image.

Today, after a spectacular afternoon spent in the Tyler Museum of Art perusing the Wyeth exhibit, I came home on a natural high, ready to re-enter the studio and see if I could turn out anything decent with my watercolor efforts.  In the mailbox, I found a package containing this T-Shirt.  I am wearing it proudly this evening, and delight in this opportunity to show it to you.

Thanks for reading.

    I live just outside Eureka Springs and spend a lot of time downtown on weekends right below that flatiron building – I have seen these tees around town. How cool that I have seen your other works here on your blog. Did you talk about this painting on your blog?

      Wow! I love Eureka Springs. I have taught at their School of the Arts the last three years in June (will for a 4th time this June). I teach plein-air watercolor there, taking the students into the historic district to paint from life. How fabulous that you have that kind of access (a long drive for me!) to that remarkable town. I don’t think I was blogging when I finished that painting of the flatiron. I have two paintings of that building (and many, many more of Eureka Springs sites).

        I browsed through your categories – I know a most of the places you painted. There is so much to paint in Eureka. I set myself just below the flat iron to photograph parades. The fall foliage is beyond belief. There is a wonderful artists community here too, as I’m sure you experienced at the school. I have always wanted to take a class there, but they always fall in our busy times at work.

        I can’t wait to get back there in June. It is my favorite place to paint en plein air. A fabulous historic district.
