A cold stream of water rushes over the cliff and comes crashing down to the rocks below. The beauty of the rocks adds nice color to the landscape. The sense of solitude is immense and is something only this artist may feel. Enjoy my painting. Ink and watercolor.

Mt. Lassen is a dormant volcano located in Lassen National Park in northern California. It is located south of Mt. Shasta and to the east of Redding and is near beautiful Lake Almanor. During a June mini-trip, we visited the park and traveled the roadway which takes visitors amazingly close to one of the highest peaks. There were large patches of snow on the ground and pure, clear lakes that were partially frozen. The sunshine was bright and the entire landscape sparkled. Ink and watercolor.

This underwater scene was done using any color I wanted to use. There was no plan to this painting other than lightly sketching out some of the images then going from light to dark as I continued to complete the image. The fish are made up, the long strands of plant growth are made up and the sea floor is also from my imagination. It is fun to paint this way at times--no structure, no thinking but just enjoying. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
