Watercolor Portraits

Although we ended up not using it, this piece was commisioned for television. It is an illustration of the prophet Joseph Smith's children playing marbles, or a game called "hoppy taw" Apparently the game was played much like marbles but chicken bones were used instead.

This is a tiny study of my Daughter Rachel our other resident artist. Anyone who has shared her company in her short 6 years is well aquainted with her voracious appetite for drawings. Anything from snics (snakes) to birthday cakes she wil
l represent them in vivid detail and tape them all over the house. Outside of Jim's boss showing up for dinner, it is a perfectly charming habit, Which is good because there IS NO STOPPING HER. I imagine that before too long her pieces will leave me in the dust.

This is a
quick portrait of Grey Zimmerman reading a book at the cabin.

Your watercolors, especially the one of Rachel, remind me of Lisbeth Zwerger. So talented Mary!
