These early morning scenes seem cool and calm before the heat of the day. Soon, the dry, dusty winds will roll through as the day heats up. Usually, in the afternoon, drenching rains will soak the landscape to take the sting off the stiffling heat. Watercolors.

This colorful image was painted from a photograph taken September 2012 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The photo was snapped in the afternoon on a beautiful sunny day. The Empress has been in existence for many years and has gone through several modifications. To see it in person is special. It is majestic. Ink and watercolor.

This edge of town image shows some buildings of a small town that may have been very active a long time ago. Now the town is empty except for a few broken down stuctures and critters running around. It is off the beaten path. The roadway through town was the main road through the country but has been replaced by a major freeway miles away. The saloon probably holds a tarnished past where townspeople came to let their hair down. Ink and watercolor.

The moon glimmers behind the clouds in this evening scene at a quiet lake. This watercolor painting was done simply and quickly and I like the way it turned out. Final touches include "lifting" color for the distant tree trunks and foreground grasses. Hint of white added to foreground trees and rocks with conte crayons. SOLD

This is a quick, small painting of the area near Cathedral Lake in the Yosemite valley. Quiet and serene, only the echos of birds and animals and the wind through the trees are heard here. SOLD
