Scary Trees

A moonlit night is highlighted by leafless trees silhouetted against the moon. This was done small on watercolor postcard material. Now I must send it to someone. I fear it will end up with postmarks all over the art. Ink and watercolor.

Containers In Color

I hope you enjoy this colorful display of bottles, jugs and pots in this semi-realistic painting. My idea was to be loose, add lots of color and to have all objects transparent. I met my goal. At times, it's fun to stray away from how we normally draw and paint. Ink and watercolor.

Emerald Bay At Lake Tahoe

Beautiful Lake Tahoe displays its fantastic Emerald Bay. This spot is one of the most photographed areas of this deep blue lake. I live only two hours away from this body of water but only visit it maybe once or twice a year. The lake is 22 miles long and about 12 miles wide with a maximum depth of 1,645 feet. It is the second deepest lake in the USA after Crater Lake. Most of the lake is in California and the remainder is in Nevada. Even in mid-summer the water seems very cold. Ink and watercolor.

Mission San Miguel Arcangel

The bell tower at Mission San Miguel Arcangel shows off its architecture. Located on Highway 101 in San Miguel, California north of Paso Robles, this old bell tower stands near the main mission. It is isolated and beautiful and smacks you in the face when you exit off the main highway. Ink and watercolor.

A Fisherman's Paradise

A fisherman's dream would be to have an isolated lake all to himself where he can cast and fish to his heart's content. People do this only when they are not in a hurry. This painting was done as a gift for my brother-in-law Gary Williams in Escondido, California. Laurie, his wife, commissioned me to do it secretly and the painting was presented this past August. We think he was surprised but maybe he knew we were doing it all along. Ink and watercolor.
