California Poppies

When we see the poppies flooding the countryside, we know it’s spring time. My painting was inspired by the many poppies that bloomed in the foothills after a less-than-normal rainy season. When the poppies bloom we know that winter has gone and warmer days are ahead. Ink and watercolor.

Plumeria Flower

This flower is called a White Plumeria. It is native to many tropical environments. The Plumeria is related to the Oleander and possesses an irritant to humans. Contact with the sap may irritate eyes and skin. Observers must be aware!!! Ink and watercolor.

Happy Monarch

This colorful butterfly is enjoying its leisure time by bouncing from flower to flower slurping up the food mother nature provides. I made the colors more brilliant on this monarch than they are in real life but maybe that made it more noticeable than it wants to be. The painting is more exciting when enhanced. This butterfly will continue to enjoy life by bothering nobody and remaining quiet. Ink and watercolor.

Italian Flower Display

This Italian window display painting was done in a David Lobenberg workshop months back. Detailed and time-consuming this painting came out surprisingly well. It is framed and hangs in the entry area of our home. Watercolor. SOLD

Two Vases

These simple flower bouquets in two simple vases show how simple a painting can be. I did some noodling with the pen on the flowers. Finally had to stop. Ink and watercolor.

Simple Flowers

Simple flowers like these are sprouting up all over the area now that spring is here. They would be more plentiful if we had more sun, warmer weather and less precipitation. The color is out there for all of us to enjoy but beware, so is the pollen which makes us sneeze and have itchy eyes. Watercolor.

Sneaky Fog

Fog has always been sort of sneaky to me. I have lived in areas most of my life where the fog comes in when conditions are right. I come into my house as the sun is going down then go outside an hour later and there is a thick layer of fog down on the deck. It's disguise is very sneaky. This painting shows a hint of fog ready to envelope these colorful flowers. Ink and watercolor.

Bright Sunflowers

These colorful sunflowers were drawn as I was dozing off for a nice nap on a hot summer day this past summer. Even though I was liking what I was drawing, I really could not stay awake--so I put my work down and took a nap. After the nap, I completed the drawing, added watercolors and other inks to complete the image. Ink, watercolor, color Sharpie and Prismacolor pens.

Time Spent In Photoshop

Sometimes it's fun to spend some time 
experimenting with Adobe Photoshop just like it's fun to 
experiment with watercolors. I used some of my original paintings to play with the filters available in this application. It is fun to see the many interesting transformations that can be produced.

Flower Wagon

While back in Vermont this summer, I discovered this nice little cart sitting empty on the porch of my brother-in-law's cabin. I took some photographs and when I returned home I drew the cart but I also included pots with flowers. The empty cart would have been OK but I added the flowers for more interest. Ink and watercolor.

Painted Desert

After heavy winter rains, the desert sprouts its color of wildflowers. The color on the hills complements the colors on the desert floor as all the flowers display their beauty under the warm sunlight. Ink and watercolor.

Wild Flowers

A collection of wild flowers is shown that you may find anywhere during the spring when everything has lots of water and warm sunshine. This art is merely a collection of flowers and stalks put to paper -- not from a photo or from the midst of a pasture. It is not linked to anything except what's in my mind. Ink and watercolor.

Flower Box

A flower box is positioned conveniently and subdued near a window in this building scene. If you look closely, you might see a figure in the window probably preparing to water the flowers. Ink and watercolor.

Simple Color Sample

I wanted to do something very simple so I redid a drawing and came up with this colorful little image. At times, I can get a nice effect by not doing the entire image as I did here on the vase. Colorful and simple, this painting shows how you can do a painting with very few strokes.

Think and plan before you put your pen or brush to the paper. It might seem difficult but it's not as hard as you might think. Do some tests on some small scraps of watercolor paper. Try it some time--I think you will like the exercise. Ink and watercolor.

Flower Fields

Poppies, blue flowers and fresh grasses make up this shaky little image. This was done on location in northern California while sneezing, sniffling and rubbing my itchy eyes during a warm day in May. I was a little uncomfortable while doing this so it was not exactly fun. The scene was just too nice to pass up. The blue, green and orange hues made me stay to draw and paint. Ink and watercolor.
