Radiant Rose – Daily Painting

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

Radiant Rose – 9.5″ x 7.5″ watercolor. Almost every day for the past five weeks or so, my dh and I have been taking walks of a half hour or an hour – within about 5-10 miles of our area. The benefits of this extra activity is many-fold. Not only do I feel healthier and [...]

California Poppies

Friday, April 27th, 2007

California poppies – 11 x 15 quarter sheet watercolor SOLD Come April, drifts of poppies, our state flower, burst into bloom in everyone’s yard. These cheerful blooms start to close around 4 pm, but in the middle of the day they are glorious. Art thought of the day Edgar Payne wrote: ” If the student [...]

Dawn Fishing

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

“Dawn Fishing” – 11 x 15 watercolor – SOLD After a landscape or two that were quite giddy with fauve color, here’s one in a quieter more contemplative mood. Fishing friends through the years have told me that dawn and twilight are the best times for fishing. Except, of course if there’s a mid-day hatch [...]

Yellow Rose sketch

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

Sketchbook Rose – 7 x 10 While I work on some larger projects to prepare some paintings for shows, here’s a page from a Canson Montval sketchbook with a full blown Descanso rose. I didn’t spend a lot of time working on the subtle turn of each petal and leaf – I just wanted to [...]

Cat Heaven

Friday, April 20th, 2007

“Cat Heaven” 8in x 12 in – watercolor on 140# Fabriano paper SOLD Auction will begin at 4 pm Pacific Time Friday – Click to bid The theme of this months’ Nibblefest is “doorways” or “open doors” and I had the idea of painting a door open onto a beautiful garden. But it looked empty [...]

Looks Like Rain

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

We’re hoping it will be rain, that is. Tonight we may see showers and tomorrow there’s a 90% chance of real, honest to God RAIN. This has been the driest winter in recent years which means the fire danger will be even more extreme as the sparse bits of grass and growth on the hillside [...]

Sycamore Creek

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

Sycamore Creek – 11 x 15 – watercolor on 140# paper SOLD Now this is a little more my speed. Some abstraction and impressionism, but some realism, too. I painted this picture twice today. The first one used more glazing, more overlapping patches of color in the main tree. I put that aside and tried [...]

Abstract sycamore

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

This was an exercise in abstracting natural forms in my watercolor class. Our teacher, who paints marvelously, is encouraging us to think more in terms of abstraction and symbol rather than literally painting what we see in front of us. I ‘get it’ and am doing the exercises and such, but there’s still a part [...]

California Byway

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

California Byway – 7″ x 5″ – watercolor A peaceful country road in the Ojai area, a little northwest of Los Angeles. There are still agrarian areas, even in Southern California, where the landscape still looks much as it did a hundred years ago (as long as you don’t notice the late model SUVs zipping [...]

High Desert Ravine

Monday, April 9th, 2007

“High Desert Ravine” – watercolor – 8″ x 10″ – available A roadside stop on the way to Idyllwild provided the inspiration for this watercolor sketch. Sagebrush, crumbing granite and the scruffy native bushes gave me an interesting variety of textures and colors to work with. Good advice from David Millard on painting: “Be a [...]
