Pomegranates, according to Jewish tradition, have 613 seeds equal to the number of commandments.
Michele Keir hasn’t used watercolors in decades. She found them difficult to control and frequently ended up with muddy colors. Although she did not end up participating, Michele was inspired to try watercolors once again when she happened to notice a watercolor workshop sponsored by the Minnesota APDA.
Michele proceeded to dig out old watercolor set from the 1970’s anyway and purchased some special watercolor paper. Now she is passionate about her new medium and pleased with her results. Her back pain limits her time creating and the fact that watercolors must be used quickly and have a quick cleanup is a major plus for her. A lifetime of art? The drugs that control her tremor? Whatever is behind Michele’s new success has elevated her spirit.
