In dovet adoration of your work, and sincerity in feeling of the nuances...sometimes strong...delicate.. complicated...divine...simple I make a sugestion. Maybe you could incorporate into your creation a latina. It would make my ego soar!

Your watercolor paintings are just beautiful, Carol! With all the excellent attention to detail, it would be great to see some close-up images of your work. Smile

Thank you for the compliments! It's actually just copper paint on the numerals. The text is done with about 5 different colors of watercolor & colored pencils and is a poem I wrote about Earth.

A gorgeous painting! Love the dew drops on the ivy and the luscious red rose. And those startling blue eyes really stand out! Did you use gold/ copper leaf for the Latin numerals and text?

These paintings are 18" x 18". Guess I should put that in the details, shouldn't I? Smile

These are beautiful, you say there are symbols in the eyes? Wow. What size are the original paintings?

Thank you yet again, James, for your wonderful comments! I wish you could see the detail in the eyes in each painting. They all have symbols within them, too. Earth has the planet Earth, Water has a cresting ocean wave, Fire has rings of fire, Air has reflected clouds, and Spirit has the Yin Yang symbol.

Art at its best.
