“Wait, You Said to Do What?”

Polly will demonstrate some of the techniques that will be used in the “Under the Sea” workshop on Saturday.


I have always liked to draw, but my career was in music.  When I retired from teaching and moved to Florida, I took many watercolor classes in Bradenton and Sarasota.  I loved it! Anne Abgott (a wonderful watercolor teacher) convinced me to enter my first Florida Watercolor Society exhibition and my painting was accepted!  My paintings were accepted the first 3 years that I entered, so I acquired signature status.  My specialty is doing commissioned work, which requires painting many different subjects and is never boring.  My style is colorful and realistic. 
Since I am still very much involved in music, I have little time to teach classes, but I still love to teach.  I am happy that CWS is giving me this opportunity to conduct the April workshop.
