A commission for a nice couple from Toronto. They wanted a snow scene with warm colors, which was not as difficult as I had thought it would be. This Winter provided me with LOTS of snow scenes to observe, sketch, and photograph.
Another lovely rose that caught my eye in San Diego. Not only is the weather great in February, but the roses are blooming! This painting is headed to a gallery soon, framed with off-white mat and white washed wood frame 12 x 12".
This was a commissioned painting of an abbey in the Danube Gorge in Bavaria. I had to piece together a few photographs to get the perspective and colors the client wanted. She was very happy with it, and let me hang it in her "travel" room.
This little painting is in a lovely white washed wood frame, with an off white mat. Frame size is 12 x 12"
A cute little chickadee painting done in sunny San Diego. I brought my paints and photos of Winter birds. Just finished my workshop for the San Diego Watercolor Society, and it went well, with 18 students.
Tonight is the painting demo for the Fallbrook Art Association.
This is the view from my backyard. Really! Minus a few power lines. The tallest hill is called Poverty Hill. Not sure about the history of that, but it sends a lovely cool breeze to our house during a hot Summer night.
My friend Annie posed for my drawing group. She brought her spinning wheel, and here she is busy spinning some alpaca yarn. I was more interested in her portrait than the spinning wheel, maybe next time. Not bad for a 20 minute drawing. I like her wispy curls.
