Lil white mushroom

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

This is my entry for the Botanical Art month long “fungus” challenge. I’m sorry to say that here in desert dry Southern California we have a hard time keeping mushrooms fresh in our fridges let alone finding any growing wild … so this painting is from a photo I took of one harvested in January [...]

Birthday lilies

Friday, August 25th, 2006

I painted this interpretation of stargazers as a birthday card for a dear friend who I’ve known for more years than either one of us want to confess! Watercolor and colored pencil on 140 #paper

Capistrano Fence

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

I have been posting less than usual the past few days because I’ve been trying to get out of my sketchbook and into bigger paintings. I’m hoping to to enter some in our Verdugo Hills society show and sale in the fall. Maybe I’ll be lucky and they’ll accept some for display. At any rate, [...]

Eucalyptus

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

Just a quick watercolor sketch of some eucalyptus – two of the 100 species growing in California – imported from Australia in the 1850s. Just as with palm trees, you can hardly look in any direction and not see eucalyptus trees. They are fast growers and were often used as windbreak protection for crops and [...]

Road trip

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

Right now, my dear daughter and friend are on a road trip across the great southwest on her trek to relocate herself for two years at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business. Go wildcats! As much as I’d like to have stowed away in the back of her minivan under the featherbed and stereo, I will [...]

Here’s your 15 minutes …

Monday, August 7th, 2006

Happy birthday yesterday. Were you still alive, you would have been 78. And you probably would have a blog and be demonstrating your latest works on YouTube. I’m sorry you didn’t live to see the internet; you would have loved it. No, you would have helped shape it, or at least shake it up a [...]

Watercolormelon

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

Well, this is a multipurpose painting. First, it’s for Illustration Friday’s theme of “Clean” – I think I cleaned out that melon pretty well. Secondly, it’s for Wet Canvas’s 4th “Art From Life” scavenger hunt. This item is “my breakfast.” It’s a ‘draw a fruit’ for Everyday Matters, too. Mostly it was an excuse to [...]
