Why alpacas on a watercolor site? Nancy had alpacas in her life for 23 years, and once in, they are hard to get out. Just ask anyone who owns them. After retiring from the industry last year, she picked up her watercolors again, and an alpaca or two started appearing in most of her paintings. They are tiny and sometimes painted in whole body profile, and other times just the head.

If you have a chance to visit an alpaca farm, it will be a worthwhile experience!
