Breakfast with a friend. A simple pleasure taken from us during 2020. I am grateful to our scientists and our country for providing us with vaccinations and treatments to protect us against this virus.

|This painting was done using the "Crinkle Technique" that I learned in a workshop taught by Cheng-Khee Chee. Rice paper (Masa paper) is crumbled, placed in water, opened up, and then paint is applied with diluted sumi ink. Watercolor paint is added as the ink is drying. The subject was from memory--based on a time our family went hiking around Mirror Lake in Yosemite and it seemed like the deer were following us. A photo reference was used to add the deer. 15" by 23"|
