Night on 2nd Street

This watercolor batik is of a dear friend's house in Sainte Genevieve, and is a special surprise for our Mother-Daughter weekend visit to our favorite inn!  Following the starry night theme I've used for two other special paintings in the area, I paint this in multiple layers of ink, watercolor and hot wax on delicate tissue thin rice paper. The effect is luminous, and always unpredictable, making the final painting one of a kind indeed.  We had a marvelous trip full of adventures, and this painting will have a new home tomorrow as a Mother's Day gift!  Painting number 5039 in 5039 days.
