Crunchy Radishes

Since the planting season is here, I decided to paint an image showing vegetables that I will soon  cultivate. In fact, I have planted some of these radishes and I hope I will be able to pluck them from the ground and eat them soon.

This image was done looking at the package of radish seeds I recently planted. Soon, I hope to have grown some healthy looking vegetables as I have shown here. Watercolor.

Abstract Farm

This splash of color and ink is titled like it is because it was intended to be an abstract farm. Many times my paintings start out as something realistic, then become so bad I need to make an abstract out of it to save it. Not the case here. Ink and watercolor.

A Duet Of Cattails

Cattails on the edge of a blue lake in the midst of some very dry hills make a nice little graphic set for a home. These two paintings are being sold as a set for someone who likes dry hills, blue waters and cat tails. There must be some lovers of the countryside who will like these images. Packaged to sell in 8" x 10" mats, these two will be on sale at my next art exhibit. Ink and watercolor.

Taos Building

This colorful building located in Taos, New Mexico, was the subject at one of our Friday drawing and painting classes. Most students did well on this subject and the variety of results were interesting. This subject is relatively uninteresting but the beauty of the building along with its color and shadows, made it fun to recreate. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Nursery Pickup

Sitting along Taylor Road in Loomis, I took the time to sketch the old pickup adorned with plants at the driveway entrance to the High Hand Nursery.

Each day, hundreds of people drive past this little jewel. I always drive by it but never stopped until last January. Finally I sketched it. I used colored inks on this one--black and sepia only.

Out Of The Cocoon

These three butterflies are released from their cocoons and are able to flit and bob for all of us to enjoy. This little series of art was purchased by our friend Karen. The art is also popular as note cards. Seems like everyone loves butterflies. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
