This building is typical of the many old buildings in our town. While the building shows some detail, most of the other elements are intentionally in whimsical mode with loosely drawn figures, a vehicle-make that is unknown, weird-looking animal under a chair, funky birds atop the building and a very uneven sidewalk. At times, it’s fun to draw and paint and not worry about being exactly accurate. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Still life paintings are fun to do. The actual pots have their own look and colors but I change them as I build my own impression. I also add items for interest like the little green plant coming from one of the pots. Unlike a photograph, a painting can be changed to offer viewers a more personal touch and vision from the artist. Enjoy this simple little still life. Ink and watercolor.

Most of you probably love the wonderful, easy-to-eat candy treat known as M and Ms. I like to munch on them like the rest of you. On this day, however, I decided to draw them and not eat any. This little piece of art took less than an hour to complete. This simple little art was produced with ink pens and watercolor washes. Once you view this, I‘ll bet you go buy some!!

In this painting, a man walks his dog in the peaceful surroundings of a very colorful city park. Hints of buildings are seen in the background which denotes that this park is in mid-city. The brilliant reds in the trees and shrubs give this scene more impact and suggest summer is gone and fall is ahead. Watercolor. SOLD
