Alexander Campbell House, Salina, KS – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor and Ink

I painted this from a wonderful photograph by Suzanne Wallick over at Paint My Photo.  It was really challenging, but I love the way it turned out.   This will be going with me to the show in Kansas City.  🙂

About Judy Garland

Beloved American actress Judy Garland will always be associated with her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She was born Frances Gumm in Minnesota in 1922 to vaudevillian parents. She made her stage debut at age two and a half. She starred in 26 films over 13 years and became a huge star. In 1950, MGM ended her contract. Though she primarily gave concerts after that, she did star in a few more films, including her famed role in A Star Is Born. She died in 1969.

    Wow! The colors! The details! This is my favorite kind. (Hold it. Do I say that all the time?) The flowering plants and scroll work are fantastic. 🙂
