I am in the process of preparing a few paintings for one international art show in Rochester, NY.  The theme that I chose this time is about the water. Since I paint mostly in watercolor, I called it Water On Color series, where the realism in watercolor is mixed with the abstract pattern. 
The six paintings that I made helped me to create some of these collages. 
The above collage has a cool feeling with just a few splashes of yellow, when the collage below is full of “fire-like” strikes and hot washes:

Abstract and Realism in watercolor
The art show is taking place in July 2014, so I will post more details later on.

For now, I am just “splashing” some Water On Color 🙂

This new painting accompanied with five others, is now on Geary Blvd in San Francisco. 
Recently opened Cafe Coco  invited me to show my large artworks there:

4201 Geary
(between 7th Ave & 6th Ave) 
San FranciscoCA 94118

I don’t think I’d ever be tired of painting the Eiffel Tower. Each time I do it, I find new intricate nuances. This time I made The Tower almost weightless, floating in the orange purple dramatic skies of Paris.

Original Painting Eiffel Tower is 24″x17″ on 140lb Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper

Last week I sent my Little Christmas Angel to more than 50 customers and art collectors in a form of greeting cards; and this Saturday I was invited to an Art Fair in a small Concord community where my Angel spread the wings again. Lots of smiles, Christmas music, and a Holiday Spirit filled the room:
Art, Jewelry, and even Beauty secrets were presented there. I’ve met wonderful people and had a good time:
Edie S. Payne with Premier Designs, Inc ( ediespayne@yahoo.com) 
Michele Cobo, Independent beauty consultant 
And right after the Art Fair, my Little Angel painting (and 17 other paintings) were invited for solo exhibition in downtown Martinez; but this is another post’s story :0).
Fly, Angel, Fly !!!
