At the end of graveyard shift

November 29th, 2009 1 comment

This is painted on a 1/4 sheet of a sheet of yellow colored handmade watercolor paper. Taken from an old family photograph, this image evokes the life of a police officer stationed on graveyard duty. He comes home and tries to relax with the Sunday comics, before the day has dawned.
This painting is for sale. It will be on display at the Burien Arts First Annual Juried Exhibition from November 12, 2010 – January 14, 2011.

Another challenging commission, this handsome young man; reference was a photo of a photo. The commission was bittersweet, as this young man who was bursting with health and vigor is now deceased. Hopefully, this painting gave the family a sweet memory of him

9 x 12 watercolor - November

The season of Autumn has flown by us, the trees seemed to hold their leaves forever, and they were resplendent. One day this week I saw the wind come up and I knew, these leaves were destined to finally fall. And this is pretty much like what it looked like from my window.

As I rushed around, doing my chores today, I could not ignore the glorious colors evident everywhere I turned. This is a scene painted from right outside my front door.
