Sarah DeLong has been painting in watercolors for over 27 years. In 2012, she moved to Morro Bay, CA from Grinnell, Iowa where she was a freelance photographer for Grinnell College. Watercolor allows her to have a loose realistic interpretation of her subject. She loves the transparent and glowing colors, the soft and hard edges you can create with watercolors. Sarah is in her element when painting by a mountain stream or painting boats in a harbor.
She is a signature member of the Iowa Watercolor Society and has won 1st, 3rd, and two 5th place ribbons in their Annual Jury Show. She is also a member of the Central Coast Watercolor Society. She has exhibited in Iowa, Minnesota, and most recently in California at the Gallery at Marina Square in Morro Bay.
