This sturdy looking lighthouse is located on red-colored rocks in calm ocean waters. Doesn't look strong enough to withstand rough seas but it is. But what is amazing to me is the fact that this structure could even be built at this location. Ink and watercolor.

This rustic old barn sits quietly beneath the mighty Teton mountains in Wyoming.The day was warm, quiet, and the birds were chirping and there was a slight breeze blowing through the trees. It was mid-summer during one of our family vacations. I had no idea I would ever paint this scene when I first saw it. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Simple flowers like these are sprouting up all over the area now that spring is here. They would be more plentiful if we had more sun, warmer weather and less precipitation. The color is out there for all of us to enjoy but beware, so is the pollen which makes us sneeze and have itchy eyes. Watercolor.

An old faded out pickup truck sits near the main roadway at the High Hand Nursery in Loomis, California. The old contraption is adorned with plants and is very noticeable as customers drive into and leave the premises. This nursery also has a nice restaurant to go along with the array of plants and trees for sale. Ink and watercolor.

Nestled in the middle of Loomis, California, this busy little store almost seems un-noticed. I sat across the street one morning and sketched the store and took photos. Later at home, I completed the painting. While I was sketching, a surprising number of people stopped by to purchase goods. There was a continuing flow of patrons. While I think the little store seems un-noticed, many of the locals know it's there. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
