Stormy sky

ditchmilanWhen one of my buddies posted a picture of a canal near Milan during a stormy day, I knew I had to paint it. The interplay of light and dark really caught my eye. And here it is. Enjoy

Fly an owl postcard

us4029573Just for fun, I painted a great horned owl on a postcard. I think the recipient will be pleased.
I love to put colors all over a page and have it come out looking like a bird… in flight.

Peonies again

May 20th, 2016 1 comment

This painting is a half sheet, 14″ x 22″. It was very challenging to paint this size. I tried my best to display the wonderful colors of Alma’s peonies. It could brighten up your wall. This painting is for sale, please inquire if you are interested.

Alma’s peonies

May 14th, 2016 1 comment

jpeoniesEvery neighborhood has one, a neighbor whose yard makes the street look beautiful. During all seasons, Alma’s yard glows in multicolored arrays of all kinds of flowers. The other day, I walked by her yard and the peony display was so gorgeous that I had to stop to take it all in. Here is my feeble attempt to capture the beauty of her flowers. This painting measures 6″ x 6″ it is ready to frame. It is sold!, all proceeds from this sale go to endangered species conservation.

In my garden, everything is green

myyardIn my back yard, I have a wonderful secret place. One can sit there, surrounded by trees and shrubs, with a soft grass and moss floor beneath, and just be. On Saturday, I found myself trying to show what it looked like with watercolors. On the left side, you can see the fig tree, and in the foreground you can see my magnificent giant cardoon.
