These beautiful fall days got me thinking I would paint a tree portrait, but that felt kinda lonely, so I added another tree. While painting, they intertwined back into one tree. That is how watercolor painting is, you need to be open to what the water wants to do. This painting did end up having a crisp fall feel to it like I had intended.

Easter Lily

This painting was inspired by the Easter lily homeopathic remedy. After I read about it, I sat down and sketched this image and later turned it into a watercolor.

Another blueish painting. I did this series of 5 in just a couple of days, and I was really into ultramarine blue. I played around with removing the blue to get back to white as 'light'. I like how alive the sun looks in this painting.

My parakeets look so sweet together. I wonder if they truly would have picked eachother, or if it is a case of love the one your with.

This watercolor painting is titled Creation, because this is how I see the place where we each get 'our boat'.

An inspirational meeting . . .

It's been way too long since I posted a painting on this blog site but I am inspired to start up again. This recent watercolor painting is called 'Feeding the Fish'. This is a tongue in cheek commentary on the dating scene - put your heart out there and see if you get a bite.

The Climb

I painted this painting 17 years ago and an electronic image of it has recently come back to me. It makes perfect sense to me why I need to keep a copy of this painting on hand. For me, it represents the challenge of staying true to yourself, staying on the path and fighting off the distractions! Oh yes, and keep your loved ones near by :)
