"ANERA uses soccer and other sports programming as a tool to cross cultural divides, cultivate gender equality and teach conflict resolution. Their staff works with local sports clubs to organize tournaments and practices with professional coaches." ANERA improves lives in the Middle East by renovating and rebuilding schools and hospitals, providing warm clothing, blankets, food and distributing medical supplies. They do great work!
"810 Super Girl" is the seventh in my series of paintings for "The Innocents Project." I'm a big fan of ANERA's and am hoping to raise awareness and funds so they can continue their work. You can read more about their work by going to their web site at www.anera.org. They are located in Washington, D.C. and if you are so inclined to make a donation, please reference "The Innocents Project."
I have revised the previous six paintings and you can see them by scrolling through my blog, or in my Daily Paintworks gallery, www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/diane-campion-3732 where they have all been updated.

I am enjoying a renewed interest in watercolor. Watercolor was my first love as far back as high school, then post-college, but I've set them aside for many years. These are not the same watercolors as they used to be---they have so much more pigment, and are so vibrant!
I took the reference photo for this painting at the Lincoln Park Conservatory on the grounds of the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. I love going there in any season to see all the beautiful plant life.
