Autumn Colors on Beacon Hill

November 14th, 2015 1 comment

autumn2015Every fall, the colors are so entrancing that I try to paint what I am seeing. Sometimes I don’t do too badly. This miniature shows one of my favorite places to walk, the greenbelt on Beacon Avenue. Painted on fine watercolor paper, it measures 4″ x 6″ and can be yours for $50.00. All proceeds go to endangered species conservation.

Seattle Skyline

November 13th, 2015 1 comment

I painted Seattle’s distinctive skyline, trying to catch the feeling of the giant edifices there. I gave the Smith Tower prominence in my painting but if you didn’t know where to look, you would probably not even notice it. The Smith Tower, the small white building in the foreground, was built in 1914 and was the tallest office building west of the Mississippi for many years. It remained the tallest building on the west coast of the USA until the Space Needle was built in 1962 for the World’s Fair. This painting is for sale, $150.00 buys this 7″ x 10″ hand painted watercolor. All proceeds go towards endangered species conservation.

The face of Jesus

jesusagainI am sure I’m not the only person who wondered what Jesus looked like. I’ve seen too many artist’s interpretations of blue eyed blondish smiling fellows, which I found disturbing. He lived in the desert, and shared bloodlines with modern day Palestinians. I’ve tried to capture him several times. I think I’m getting closer. Had to give him an open face, warm eyes, a pleasant countenance. Here he is. Hope you like him.
