#6: "Happy Hostas", watercolor, 8" x 6"
Today I went to Daniel Smith's paint factory for a tour. It was really interesting to see how paint is made. It has been done the same way for hundreds of years, though DS has added a few modern devices. (No one was sitting around grinding and mixing by hand. However, the labels on DS's paints are still put on by hand!) We saw a number of very beautiful new paint colors. Serpentine Green really caught my eye, so I had to buy it and run right home and try it. I usually mix my own greens, but this one seemed special. Therefore....Happy Hostas is the Ray for Today.
