Tiger’s eye

July 30th, 2014 3 comments


Yesterday was Global Tiger Day, and I decided to do a watercolor  painting of a tiger and then  quickly sold it. But I discovered that I am really enjoying painting tigers! This morning, I found myself wondering how little of a tiger I could paint and still find myself looking at a tiger. Then I started noticing the wonderful colors, patterns and textures to be found on a tiger’s face. And the tiger’s eye, which looks deep into your soul… and sees dinner.

This painting is for sale, $60 buys it. It measures 5″ x 7″, on imported Italian watercolor paper. All proceeds go to ISEC Canada International Society for Endangered Cats.

July 29th is World Tiger Day. Tigers are the largest of the cat nation. They are endangered every where mostly because of loss of habitat. It is scary to think of how many tigers were once shot for sport. There are few creatures on earth as beautiful as these intelligent mysterious cats. This painting is SOLD, it measures 5″ x 7″ .

In Georgia O’Keeffe’s shadow – Pedernal

July 16th, 2014 2 comments

I had the opportunity to sit and paint surrounded by the landscape that Georgia O’Keeffe loved, at her Ghost Ranch. We sat under a big tree in Adirondack chairs and the mesas lay in front of me, clothed in brilliant light and shadows. The clouds all by themselves were an incredible show. This mesa is called Pedernal.
This painting is not for sale.
