This painting was inspired by a 25-year old photograph of my friend and her daughter that was used for a Mother's Day fb post. I loved the energy between them and the curls in their hair. The painting is 16x20" with the mat and was done on 140 lb, Fabriano hot pressed watercolor paper.
Here is one of my favorite paintings that resulted from spending a week painting with Bev Jozwiak. It was great to get back into painting. It's been a while since I've painted much.
This painting was inspired by a photograph of my cousin's daughter after we crafted a crown of beautiful fall leaves. She's holding a mud pie - another fall delicacy. The painting is 16x20" with the mat and was done on 140 lb, Fabriano hot pressed watercolor paper.
This painting was inspired by a photograph from our New Year's Eve celebration. Apparently, it was too late in the evening to be photographed based on the disgusted look on her face.. The painting is 16x20" with the mat and was done on 140 lb, Fabriano hot pressed watercolor paper.
My brother wanted a painting of the San Jose Sharks. So I painting this image of the team captain slipping the puck past his opponent. The 16x20 painting (including the beige mat) was done on Fabriano Hot Pressed Watercolor paper.
This painting was inspired by my friend's 70th birthday party. I loved how her long-time friend was sitting there with her looking on as she blew out the candles. I felt the power of their friendship that had evolved over many decades.
The painting is 16x20 on hot pressed watercolor paper with a beige mat.
Ahhh, the morton salt girl. Or that's what we called her when we spied her waiting outside in the rain for us. I always loved the reference photo, so decided to try it as one of my experiments with 140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper. It worked well to the nature of hot pressed paper.
16x20 with white mat.
Inspired by a painting of my brother and his wife at a wine tasting, this one was done to suggest the happy couple in a similar scene.
This painting was inspired by the piano player at a house concert. The music was amazing, but the mood of the scene was inspirational. The 16x20 watercolor was done on 140 lb cold pressed paper and framed in a beige mat.
I sold it in September of 2017 to a neighbor as it reminded her of her daughter.
This piece was commissioned as a thank you gift. It was signed each team member and presented at the conclusion of the project.
