Rosie Coleman recently donated this watercolor to be displayed at the entrance of the ladies’ locker room at The Creek at Hard Labor. Ms. Coleman is an active member of the Ladies Association where she is one of the chairpersons of the monthly tournaments.
She currently resides in Athens, where she earned her Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Georgia and is a retired environmental consultant. After retiring in 2006 she started taking classes at the Oconee County Art Foundation in Watkinsville with Watercolorist Leigh Ellis. In addition she has taken classes in Sautee, North Carolina, Alabama, New Mexico and South Carolina.
She enjoys the spontaneity of watercolors as well as the complex challenges of painting portraits in watercolor. Recently she has been inducted into the Georgia Watercolor Association, which is very exciting for her.
