Another great day painting on location.
On one trip to France, she painted on location in more than 8 cities.
Working in watercolor and oil, she toured each city absorbing the inspiration of the Provence region.
The painting tour included an extra week in Paris to visit her favorite museums
and to paint on location in Tuileries Garden and the Seine River.
A very special afternoon in Paris' Tuileries Garden
This most recent body of work from trips which include France, Italy,
Honduras,Mexico, and special locations of the US.
Some of her favorite days are spent out doors in places you probably pass every day.
Taking from the works of the great Creator, she captures moments and emotions in time.
Known for a distinctive style of realism, the works of Donna Peters possess a steady thread of creativity and a style inherently her own style. Working exclusively in watercolor for over three decades, the artist returned in 1991 to an early love of painting in oil. Regardless of the medium or subject, her style is consistent and her collectors enjoy the inspiring flow of creativity.
The artist and her husband live on Smith Lake, north of Birmingham, AL.
Their country home and environment offer them brief periods of calm, quiet and privacy needed to
refuel for a lifestyle in constant motion.
