Petals of Sunshine


Gently unfolding
Embracing what is today
Petals of sunshine

I thought this simple yellow rose and bud were a great reminder of warmer weather to come and flowers blooming in the garden.  This watercolor floral is done on 140# Arches paper and measures 5 1/8" wide and 4 3/4" high.
Hope you enjoy this reminder of spring and summer's blooms.

Circling at Sunset


"Whoosh" of wings in flight
Settling down at end of day
Circling at sunset

I guess by now you know I love the beach--the tranquility--the smells--the sounds--the shape of the dunes with their graceful grasses--the air that can only be found there.  And of course, seagulls and seabirds are the "jewelry" that add the final touch.

This is a very small watercolor, 6" wide by 5.25" high and it is done on 140# Arches watercolor paper.  I just thought in the middle of the blizzard we're currently experiencing in Connecticut, a "trip" to the beach would be just great!  Enjoy.
