Spring Zen watercolor on Arches
Fall Leaves watercolor on Arches
I painted this last year. It's still kickin' around somewhere...at my mom's maybe.
" My Gift - this very bear claw necklace was created by my son...aged about 9 at the time...and secretly placed into my purse...only to be discovered by myself at the grocery till..."Do you like it Mom?" he asks me with shining eyes..."Oh yes, my dear...it's the best present I've ever gotten!" Yeah...kinda ew...and haven't yet found an occassion to wear it...perhaps someday.
"Spring Zen"...just a little sketch of the softness of spring.
Some more fall leaves from my backyard...
And a half sheet of pottery that I painted a couple of months ago...jury is still out on this one. There are definitely parts I really like...and some that are quite hideous...what do ya think?
Talk to me...

Meditation watercolor on Arches 11x15"
Here are a few more paintings I have done in the last months.
Leaves and stones, titled "Meditation"...another favorite subject. I have an idea for a large, mandala type painting like this...just thoughts...
"Cherry Pie" ...a happy accident...dropped a big ol' brush of Aliz on the paper...Voila! Cherry juice!
Another Autumn Zen painting "Iris Leaves"...loved how the red leaves had fallen into the iris leaves, and curled around them. And an untitled leaf painting...my backyard is a wealth of beautiful paintings
And my favorite childrens' books...Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne's 'Now We Are Six', and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
I have a few other book paintings that I will share. I love books. I wish I could eat them...but I just read them and paint them. I even have children...aged 12 & 13...who READ BOOKS!! Exciting, or what!! Yeah...will wonders ever cease.
Let me know your thoughts...not all of them of course...just a select few...

The top one is...obviously...a barn. Aren't all watercolorists supposed to paint a barn at some point? Well...here's my barn. I kinda like my barn. I really like my fence...I guess I just like this painting. It's 15"x22".
Here are couple more recent works.
The second one is one of the Autumn Zen paintings (can't remember which number), and is 11"x30". I have another similar one...but with all red leaves...but I seem to have misplaced the pic...darned computer gremlins...
Both are professionally matted and framed...and if you would like to purchase these, or see more samples of my work...well leave me a message...haven't figured out all ins and outs of the site yet...but stay tuned! I'm sure I'll get it straightened out...eventually...
Talk to me...

I painted it last weekend, matted it yesterday, and sold it about half an hour later. Life is good.
