I Take Thee

A surreal painting created for an exhibit in 2021- this started out when I thought about how a penguin looks like he is wearing a tuxedo and, well, it kind of took off from there! 2020. Painting size: 11” X 17”. $425.

Red Chair

While in Nashville, looking for the American Pickers antique shop, we were walkiing through a huge building that contained many individual small stores that lined a long wide main aisle. I was going along at a pretty fast pace, trying to find the right shop, peeking in each one as I went by and I literally stopped in my tracks when I saw this gorgeous red leather chair sitting in the sunshine. It was beautiful!! This painting is based on that red chair. 2020. Painting size: 22” X 14”. Matted frame size: 25” X 17”. $375.

The Big Easy

We’ve been to New Orleans twice, and it is one of my favorite cities! I wanted this painting to capture the spirit and fun of New Orleans. The colors are vibrant and alive and the image is a bit spooky. Just like the city! 2018. 14” X 10”. $315.

Rainy Day

Even the rain could not distract from the fun of NYC. Once across the street, we bought a couple of jumbo hot dogs. 2019. Painting size: 12” X 20”. Matted frame size: 16”X24". $415.

Murphy and his Little Brother

This was a commissioned piece and is not for sale.  The fur was challenging,  but I used a Mr. Clean eraser to help with getting a furry look.  I learned about that technique in a recent online class.

Black Paper Paintings

Stonehedge Aqua released a new watercolor paper a few years ago that was jet black, cotton paper 130 lb with the same qualities as Arches.  It has been a challenge and thrill to use this new paper!  Below are the paintings I’ve created using black watercolor paper.  The same watercolor paints are used, meaning these paintings will last for many years.

European Coffee (This painting on display/for sale at Capitol Lakes May 1st - June 26th)

Absolutely the best coffee I ever had! Even the instant served in the hotels was better than anything I ever mad. Stonehedge Aqua 130 lb black paper. 2020. 15” X 20”. $370.

Bella

This was a consignment piece, but I loved how it turned out, and I wanted to show the power of using black watercolor paper. NFS.

Seedlings (This painting on display/for sale at Capitol Lakes May 1st - June 26th)

This painting is the result of a challenge for a gallery show - to create a square painting with a theme of ‘Circle of Life’. I used Stonehedge Aqua Black 130lb paper, which gives a nice background for the colors. 2019. 12”X12”. $250.

Cactus Flowers

These beautiful glass sculptures were on display in a Sarasota, Florida location that I was touring with a friend, and I thought a reference to them would make a lovely watercolor painting. I took several pictures and used them as a guide in painting this on black Stonehedge Agua 130 lb cold pressed paper. 2020. 16” X 20”. $350.
