Christine



We are going to stay in Florida for a third day.

Christine Reichow paints water colors that she exhibits in outdoor art shows in Naples, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers.  Her subjects include the shorebirds in southwest Florida, like herons, ibises, hawks, roseate spoonbills and wood storks.  I didn't see any gopher tortoises.

she's as lovely as her art.

Absolutely agree with Brattcat, those sparkling eyes are full of creativity. One of your loveliest portraits Jack.

There is a lot of inspiration for an artist along the Gulf Coast of Florida. A watercolor artist has to be very talented. You can cover up mistakes like you can do with oils or acryllic paints.

Kate said...

My first thought was the same as Brattcat's. I googled the artist's name and her work is indeed extraordinary.

Janet said...

I can tell by her face that she loves her work!

Birdman said...

I bet she could conjure you up one from your image of the other day.

Artists are so...artsy. Her hat makes all the difference. Charming! She is truly talented working in water colors. A friend's mom is located in that area and she creates unbelievable water color paintings.

I was able to rest easy last night knowing we have agreement on the Federal Building. Negotiations have to begin somewhere! I suspect the SDP staff is going to bump into you while on assignment one of these days. The SDP Chairman of the Board has given the order to keep our eyes open for a neckless caucasian male of retirement age with glasses and a receding hairline who is wielding a camera and charming strangers into posing for well composed portraits.

RedPat said...

Great portrait, Jack! It is hard slugging your work round to those shows - I hope she does very well.

Lovely portrait. Enjoy the Florida sunshine. Bet there is plenty of that about :).

Randy said...

Like the hat, and her artwork.

Michelle said...

A very well rounded portrait. Beautiful person, beautiful art, and just a great setting.

Nathalie Beaumes said...

Getting to know the artist behind the work is always a great plus in my mind. I love both her work and her looks. I agree with SRQ that the hat makes her so... artsy!

VP said...

Watercolor is extremely diffcult because you can't paint it over. The lady looks very good at it!

Gunn said...

Happy face, and her hat looks smart!
I hope she had a good sale, and got more places to show and sell her art.

Jack, did you buy some new art?

I like her style!
