The sun will soon appear above the distant mountains. Its colors are already reflected on the still water which seems to be at low tide since I see so many rocks. Looks like it's gonna be a glorious day. Watercolor.

These wetlands scenes are typical of those seen in the areas west of Sacramento. At sunrise or sunset colorful clouds and sky make for beautiful scenery. I had two narrow frames so I did these paintings to fit into them. They look good framed. Can't get much simpler than these watercolor paintings.

This beautiful, colorful pine cone hangs amongst the branches of a pine tree. I have always liked pine cones and while growing up there was an abundance of pine trees. We would gather the pine nuts from the cones, crack the shells and feast on the sliver of nut pulled from the shell. Not much nut to eat but we collected so many pine nuts we could feast to our hearts content. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

This winter scene at sundown was painted in a workshop I took from David Lobenberg in December 2012. I feel the painting turned out well and it shows the cold of winter but also has enough color to make the painting more interesting. This painting is all watercolor except for the use of some conte crayon for the highlights. SOLD
