Sarah DeLong

Sarah DeLong
Sarah DeLong is a signature member of the Iowa Watercolor Society and has won a 1st, 3rd and two 5th place ribbons in their Annual Jury Show. She has exhibited in many shows in Minnesota and Iowa, including the Heritage Gallery in Des Moines. In 2010 the National Transparent Watercolor Society accepted her “Oaxaca Basket Weaver” painting into their annual jury show.

Sarah moved to Morro Bay at the end of 2011 from Grinnell Iowa. She has worked in watercolors for over 27 years and she is in her element painting outside near a rushing stream or sitting on a dock in a harbor. She’s mainly a landscape painter but has painted people, animals and flowers. Watercolor has allowed her to have a loose realistic interpretation of a subject. She loves the transparent and glowing colors one can create with watercolor when they are mixed on paper.
