Fresh cattails, cool, blue waters and dry, brown hills dotted with trees always make for a nice landscape painting. This scene is typical in California during the summer months. Many people do not like the brown hills, but I do. During the spring, the hills are a beautiful green which most people like. Visitors are sometimes surprised to see so much dry land up and down the state. Ink and watercolor.

These huge, dry mountains and hills at the edge of a desert appear immovable. Over time they do move because of the pressures within the earth. There is a certain beauty to the dryness and blandness in this type of scene. Many do not like the dry look. I love it and the isolated feeling. Ink and watercolor.

This owl looks mean, wise and serious as he peers directly into our eyes. But, I have never met an owl who does not look serious. I do not even think you would ever find him ASLEEP. This owl was done quickly using an Ultra Fine Point Sharpie, shades of gray brush pens and watercolors. SOLD

This scene shows the plump, juicy and ripe grapes grown up here in Placer Country. Not only are these fun to draw but these grapes are used to make fabulous wine which I like to sip. This art sale was a first for me in selling so quickly. Friends came by the house to visit, saw it and bought it before I had time to put it into a frame. I normally have everything ready to sell but this was not ready the way I like it. The quick sale was nice, however. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
