Ambassador of the Week: Mo Myra

“Adirondack Skies” (watercolor, 18 x 24 in.)

“Painting plein air is my joy, and watercolor is my favorite medium,” says Mo Myra. “When I’m not painting outdoors, I’m working as a full-time commissioned painter, live wedding painter, and watercolor Instructor for the West Hartford Art League. 

“I’m deeply honored to say that my work has won awards in multiple juried competitions, and grateful to have had the opportunity to win an award recently for Women in Watercolor’s 4th annual International Juried Competition. As a plein air painter, I work hard to make my watercolors feel like they have an essence of the place where they were painted, and I’m grateful that many of my pieces have found homes with collectors locally and worldwide. 

“For me, learning to paint is a lifelong pursuit and I continue to learn from artists I admire year after year.”
