Wine, Anyone?
Here’s another one from the archives.  In 2011, I used a photo from the WetCanvas Reference Image Library for this one.  Monday, I’ll have another new painting for you.  Have a great weekend!
Christiane Northrup, M.D. 

From her website:  As a physician, author, mother, inspirational speaker, and pioneer in women’s health, I’ve dedicated my life to teaching women how to flourish.

Health isn’t just the absence of disease. It’s being physically and emotionally able to live joyfully and in alignment with your deepest self. You have the ability to build health every day. Just be open to new ideas and to adopting new habits.

I designed this Web site to help you enjoy vibrant health. Read my blog, the hundreds of articles in Health Wisdom A-Z, the Health Centers and my newsletter archives. Listen to recordings of my Internet radio show, or download podcasts and video clips, prepared just for this site.

Flourishingly yours,
CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D.

Port Wine

“Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever.”
– Margaret Cho

Port Wine – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor and Gouache on White Art Spectrum Colourfix

Art Spectrum Colourfix is a fine tooth sanded paper, designed for pastels.  I love doing watercolor on it.  This painting was challenging and fun!  It is from my WDE at WetCanvas and the image is a photo by Agnesdale.  It’s another great photo I found in the Reference Image Library at WetCanvas.

About Margaret Cho

Margaret Cho, the outspoken Korean-American comedian and actor, made television history as the first Asian-American with her own TV series, All American Girl. She was born in 1968 in San Francisco and has mined her life for extremely successful one-woman shows, including I’m the One That I Want and Notorious C.H.O., both of which spawned albums, movie versions, and books. When not touring with her comedy, Cho works now in Hollywood as both an actress and a director.

Wine on the Beach

“The experiences of life can become our teachers; the accidental predicaments of our lives are, in this sense, spiritual opportunities.”
–Tara Bennett-Goleman

Wine on the Beach – 7″ x 9″ Watercolor

This came from a larger and more complicated image from lisilk at WetCanvas.  I opted to do a loose and simple version, using only a large brush and not too much detail.  I had a really good time!  🙂
