‘Coming Out Roses’

Sue DeVinny

I began watercolor painting several years ago, yet my passion for art goes way back.  In my youth, I loved playing around with so many different crafts – drawing, painting, batiking, macrame, leather crafts, sewing, weaving, knitting, crochet, needlepoint, candle-making, wood crafts, baking, and on and on.  And then came the next forty rich years with college and teaching and family and life … and artwork went on hold.

Finally, after the youngest of our three was heading off to college, I discovered Cara Brown, a well-known Bay Area watercolorist who is as wonderfully talented as she is kind and patient.  I began painting with Cara and the wonderful “Magnolias” every Thursday, and we have now had many shows at selected locations around Marin County.  I determined early on that I wanted to paint only scenes that are bright and colorful which bring a sense of joy — thus mostly flowers, gardens, landscapes, and pets.
