|"Lumos" original watercolor by Carrie Waller 6" x 8" on 260lb Arches SOLD|
Did anyone else get swept away in magical wizarding world of Harry Potter? I certainly did. When the first book came out my hubby and I were living in Germany and couldn't wait to get our hands on an English copy, this was before Kindles. They were sold out on base and I borrowed the book from our 13 year old neighbor. She stayed up all night long reading the book after it's midnight release. I stayed up the next night reading the book cover to cover and then passed it along to my husband who, in turn, did the same thing. It was and still is a phenomenon. So after I painted my first version of this painting for the fabulous Carol Carter, I was thrilled and flattered that Crystal Cook said she wanted me to paint her a version. Crystal's son a fellow Potter fan said that the painting was cool and that it looked like something out of Harry Potter. So in honor of the Cook's I am titling this painting "Lumos". And because I just can't get enough of these ball jars I am painting an 18 x 24 version.
