I have a day job working in a gorgeous tropical garden. I love my job, but it does make it challenging to do my second job, painting which I love even more. This morning I'm off so I was finally able to finish this second watercolor for peace. This painting will be heading off to Nohea Gallery in Honolulu. Have a peaceful weekend everyone.

Watercolor Painting for Peace

Into the Light No. 1
Original Watercolor Painting on paper
10 x 8
by Colleen Sanchez
This weekend I really felt the need to paint something to represent my wish for peace. I think one of the ways I can contribute is to converse and live in a peaceful way, never attempting to harm others. We are all part of one community of human beings. For me white also represents peace so this is one of two white hibiscus I was working on. Soon I'll post the other one if it turns out the way I'd like it to.

This painting will be heading off to Nohea Gallery.

Original Watercolor Painting, Pink Hibiscus

IN THE PINK
Original Watercolor Painting

8 x 8 on paper

Working on a few more paintings for the gallery. Just completed this pink hibiscus in watercolor yesterday. I found this lovely flower at Waimea Valley park a while back and of course fell in love. I don't know why but I continue to be obsessed with the Hibiscus flower. They may look easy to paint but they are not, however I'm always up for a challenge. A couple more small paintings to complete for the gallery and then I'll get back to the large landscapes. Mahalo for looking.
