Italian Countryside

My painting shows a birds eye view of a lush wine country setting somewhere in Italy. The long shadows denote an early morning sunrise before a warm summer day. Ink and watercolor.

Broadmoor Hotel Sketch

On our recent trip to Colorado Springs to see our grandson graduate from high school, we stayed at the beautiful upscale Broadmoor Hotel. We enjoyed our three night stay immensely. On our last morning before checking out, I sketched the front entrance showing the mountains behind and ominous clouds above. It was a very striking scene. Ink and watercolor.

Great Northern Caboose Sketch

This was a sketch I did in class along with the students. Our theme was railroad cars and I brought photos of an old caboose. We discussed the photo then I showed how I begin my painting with a sketch. Then the students went to work. We ended up with some nice, nearly completed cabooses. Ink and watercolor.

Pueblo Sketch

This sketchy little pueblo scene could be from somewhere in the southwest USA or Mexico. Actually, I took bits and pieces from photos to produce this small painting. I like the colors, the looseness and simplicity. Life looks very simple here. Ink and watercolor.

Snowball Trees

This early autumn scene shows what snow looks like when mounted atop trees that are loaded with leaves. This was a very early snow storm. Ink and watercolor.
