This lovely piece is untitled. It's the largest watercolor Hannah has completed to date taking over 120 hours to complete. It measures about three and a half feet by four and a half feet.
It won Best in Show in the Visions XXIV Juried Exhibition at the Riverfront Gallery Stevens Point, and has been featured at the Alumni Show at the Carlson Gallery UWSP.
Cascading Rainbow is a 9"x12" full watercolor illustration. There's no pen-work because recently Hannah has been challenging herself to take her work to the next level.
Rainbow was sketched at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in 2022, but Hannah opted to wait on finishing the piece until January-February of 2023.
"Holding Memory" was one of the first done at The Bristol Renaissance Faire in the 2023 season. Hannah draws LIVE in front of her shop and on the opening Sunday, the Trained Band of Bristol holds a Memorial March. It's historically accurate, but it honors real people of the show. Hannah can't help but create to process the grief and this painting is the result.
"Pink Roses" was drawn and completed during the 2023 season at The Bristol Renaissance Faire. This is a pinpoint to when Hannah started looking critically at her work with a fellow artist colleague and friend. It rekindled the passion in her craft, and her works from here defiantly looks and feels different.
After the festival season came to a close in 2023, Hannah looked at her inventory of paintings and felt very disconnected from a number of works.
"A Phoenix and a Dragon" was originally an 8"x 10" piece that was finished in 2019. Being rather flat it didn't capture the intensity Hannah wanted it to have. So, she created this. A 16"x 20" intense, playful, and fiery dance.
"Roses and Gladiolus" is a full watercolor piece. This 18"x 12" piece was done to keep up the freedom from pen. Her previous watercolor only works from this year had no detail challenge. So, Hannah took the opportunity to challenge her patience and added floral details to the sketch. The rest is there to see.
