Reflections

While having an exquisite lunch at the Culinary Institute of America in NY, we were able to see behind the glass window the students working on creating fabulous deserts.

The colors of the leaves this past fall were breathtaking!  These leaves were on the tree in my front yard.  2021. 11” X 14”. Framed and matted. $325.

Llamas

Split Rock

Ghent, Belgium

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. Framed. 11” X 17”. $425.

Rampage

Lady Scarecrow

This painting was done using only three colors: Ultramarine blue, Q gold, and crimson red. I also used a pour technique for the corn and the posts, where the colors are allowed to freely blend together. 2021. 12” X 18”. Professionally framed and matted. $350.

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. Professionally framed and matted. 25” X 17”. $375.

Game Day

Going to see the Cubs play with your little brother is quite a thrill! These two Cub fans were headed to Wrigley Park on a warm summer night. 2019. Professionally framed and matted. 21” X 27”. $410.

Just Fishy

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. Framed and matted. 16”X24". $415.

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.

Sunrise

The sun was just peeking over the mountains in Moab, Utah as we waited for the van that would take us to the site for our hot air balloon ride over Arches National Park. It was a surreal few seconds when everything seemed to stand still… this painting is based on that feeling. 2021. Framed.11” X 14”. $350.

European Coffee

Absolutely the best coffee I ever had! Even the instant served in the hotels was better than the best cáfe coffee around here. Stonehedge Aqua 130 lb black paper. 2020. Professionally framed and matted. 15” X 20”. $370.

Seedlings

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. Framed. 12”X12”. $250.

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.

Winter Night

Based on a photo from my sister-in-law of an old house in her neighborhood.  I remember that house from when I was growing up.  It’s deserted, but still so beautiful.  Not for Sale.

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. Framed. 16” X 20”. $350.
