Lavender Skys

This little watercolor on paper, 3″ by 5″ card is a bit out of focus but it’s for sale for $15.00

I love these colors and like to use them together because the mixture is very rich.  The colors are Quin Gold and purple.    


I have painted a daily painting for two years and now I think I will paint less paintings but paint more complex things which will take more than one painting session.  So if you see less paintings in the future just know that I want you to keep checking in with me because I see some dramatic paintings in my future.  They may take me two days or even three but I’m hoping what I’ve learned from my daily painting experience will transcend to the longer painting sessions and allow me to grow as an artist.

H2o Tribute to this Beautiful Earth

8 by 10 watercolor and Gesso on masonite.   $ 75.00

I haven’t been to the beach in several years and if given the opportunity I would go to the mountains before I would go to the beach, yet when I do travel to the coast, I’m always in awe of the mighty ocean.

Its been a long day and I think I’ll hit the hay.  This morning when I woke up there was a stuffed rabbit laying on the pillow next to my head.  I know my dog, Glock left this present for me because he loves stuffed animals and makes sure I have at least one to sleep with.

“A koi or two ” A Tribute to the Earth

This painting is a watercolor on paper , the size is, 15 by 7.5

It sells for $100.00 and would look great in a location where you need a painting that is longer then it is wide.  It rained five inches since yesterday,  wow, and I was told thats more  rain in 24 hours then the rest of the year so far.   I’m so glad because we really needed it!

Pretty girl has Cancer

This pretty girl has lymphoma and will have to be put to sleep this week.  Her owner has asked me to paint her portrait and I visited with them for a short time yesterday.  I took this photo of her as a reference.  I also looked at several pictures of her when she was feeling a bit better. 

I hope I’ll be able to capture her spirit as she is a gentle and sweet dog.
