Another worthy cause. Lots of good art! Check it out on the NEC website.
My watercolor painting Purple Muse is part of a series of purple calla lilies I started painting in Bob Benson's watercolor class at College of the Redwoods. Bob brought the callas to the class in a pot and we saw them open and change color during the class. Bob, kneeling on the floor, created several powerful paintings. Later I planted my own purple callas and I enjoy their brief bloom every spring. They change shape and colors in dramatic ways - and if you look closely they harbor a little pineapple in their longs throats.
