House Down the Road

I painted this 11x15 watercolor a few years ago. I'm putting it on this blog because it is how I with I could paint all landscapes. I love the watercolor feel that I captured. To me this says, "watercolor".

A strawberry in the Nick of Time

There are days - and sometimes weeks - when I can't seem to paint anything at all. When this happens, I go back to paint something that I've had success with. Strawberries are such a subject - especially with the blossoms and negative paintings.

Bird's Nest in Watercolor

I did this watercolor of a bird's nest in a tree during my weekly watercolor class. It is not really what I wanted to accomplish and I had to make lemonade out of a large lemon. What I don't like about it is the large horizontal tree at the bottom - and the fact that the nest is kind of floating in the air. It did, however, give me an inspiration to start a painting of a similar subject, hopefully with a better composition.
