An Old Los Angeles Favorite

This painting of the Capitol Records building was done for a friend who gave the original as a gift to her son on Christmas 2013. This building and scene is one of his favorites. Many of you may recognize this building which was very unique when it was built in 1956. Located just north of the famous Hollywood and Vine intersection, it remains very unique in its architecture to this day and is a definite landmark in Los Angeles. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Happy New Year

 My first painting of the year shows a quiet neighborhood at night during a winter snowfall. My painting also suggests “wishful thinking” on my part because we in northern California are not receiving rain or snow as we normally do. Typically, we would have had a decent amount of rain and the mountains would be packed with snow by now. Hopefully, the month of January will begin to bring us some precipitation. We need the snowpack so our lakes will fill up and be ready for the warm summer months. Enjoy my watercolor. I hope you have a happy and prosperous 2014.

In Downtown Lincoln

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

A Simple Little Still Life

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.

Yummy M and Ms

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!!

A Walk In City Park

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

The Solitude Of Fishing

 I am not a fisherman, but if I was, I would love to fish in these conditions and these surroundings. This painting defines the perfect environment in which to fish. I was not in a nearby boat when I painted this. The idea came from a photograph. Watercolor.

A High Desert Visit

A remote country side like this is sometimes difficult to draw and paint to get much attention. There is not much there and for most of the year not much color is seen. I used my pens for most of this sketch with watercolor washes used at a minimum. I added more color to the huge rock formations and only hints of green to areas of living plants and trees. Ink and watercolor.

Finding The Cantina

Every little town has a cantina it seems. This painting shows a quiet street and a cantina in the middle of town where people meet to eat and drink. Long shadows show it may be late afternoon. A few cars and a few people dot the main street in this lonely little town. This scene could be in Mexico or on the southern border of the USA. Watercolor.
