In 2007, I began blogging. It is exciting to create consistently, sell my work around the world, and meet wonderful friends! I paint, teach, write, am a lover of nature, family and friends. This is where I post my latest studio work with comments about my process, tips about my techniques, and my thoughts on how faith, art, and life converge. Book mark me and visit again soon!

If you scroll down one entry, you will see that this
festive rendition of a floral came from a recent trip to Los Angeles
where I had the opportunity to wander through the L.A. Arboretum. The
prolific blooms and variety of flowers was something rather amazing to
my mid-west winter-weary eyes! This painting tries to capture some of
the beauty and color that surrounded me.
Offered here with a white matting, it will come to you ready to frame!
This week, I've had a wonderful time visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Los Angeles. Among so many things, I got a morning at the arboretum. This little watercolor painting is still in progress, but you can see its progression in the 2 images. More work is still needed, and will be done soon!
The paper I used is much like Yupo. Very smooth and does not absorb the paint. Thus, the wet paint sits on the surface and the wet into wet effects are very interesting.
I have dozens of reference pictures from this visit and lots of new ideas are forming! I'll post more on this one soon!
