|Oaxacan Basket Weaver © Sarah DeLong|
Sarah DeLong moved to Morro Bay at the end of 2011 after living in Grinnell, Iowa. Watercolor has been her medium of choice for over 24 years. She is in her element painting by a mountain stream or painting a boat in a harbor. In recent years painting people has been an interest of hers. Sarah loves the glowing transparent colors you get with watercolor and has developed a loose realistic style.
Sarah is a signature member of the Iowa watercolor Society and has won a 1st, a 3rd and two 5th place ribbons in their Annual Jury Show. She has exhibited in many shows in Minnesota and Iowa. In 2010 the national Transparent Watercolor Society accepted her "Oaxacan Basket Weaver" painting in their Annual Jury show. She is represented by Catriri's Art Oasis in Amana Iowa.
