Laden Bough


This watercolor painting is done in a vignette style with all edges of the paper being touched, but in varying amounts.  It is a very loose and free painting, with lots of sketched in leaves left unpainted.  Even the peaches have a soft, fuzzy look, with little detail. It was done very quickly and I liked the immediacy of it.  It's approx. 15.5" high and 9.5" wide.  Hope you enjoy this one!

Garden Niche II - Oil


Garden Niche II  is an oil painting from a beautiful spot in Sarlat, France, in the Dordogne Valley.  It was a lovely sunny morning and breakfast was being served on the terrace of our bed and breakfast.  I loved the shadows on the clay pot and the texture of the stone of this very old structure.  The flowers were a bright spot of color set against the neutral stones.  This is painted on a 10" x 10" canvas.

Hope it reminds you of a sunny summer morning!

Beauty in White

This painting is very different for me, but I have to say I really enjoyed the challenge.  I was taking a wonderful watercolor class and this was the subject.  I loved the grace of the swan and the reflections in the water were really interesting to paint.  Hope you enjoy this piece--it's painted on 300# Arches watercolor paper with transparent watercolors.   I'ts roughly 1/4 sheet, about 14" wide by 10" high.
