Umberto Rossini

Great and fun watercolor demo by Umberto Rossini. I can never make watercolor work while he just throws paint around and gets beautiful paintings!

FUND RAISER

I donated one of my paintings for a Make a Wish event. It did pretty well. Probably not because it is such a good painting as much as the cause it was sold for.
