Salt & Pepper

“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”
– Beverly Sills

Salt & Pepper – 8″ x 8″ Watercolor

This was done from a black & white reference photo by Connie at WetCanvas.  I had a great time playing with it.  It felt so good to get my watercolors out again.

About Beverly Sills

Beverly Sills, the talented American opera coloratura, became an international superstar in 1966 with her performance in Handel’s Guilio Cesare. She was born Belle Miriam Silverman in 1929 in New York. The New York City Opera rejected her repeatedly before they hired her in 1955. She left singing briefly in the 1960′s to devote herself to her young children: One is largely deaf, the other is mentally retarded. After retirement, she took the reins of the New York City Opera, turning it into a viable operation. Sills died of lung cancer in 2007 at the age of 78.
