Late Afternoon - Truro Light


A trip to Cape Cod isn't complete without re-visiting at least one lighthouse.  This is the Truro Light, shown in late afternoon, with the sun low in the sky and sending raking shadows across the land.  The whole back of the lighthouse is in shadow, but I loved the bright white on the cylindrical form of the light.  
This painting recently won an Honorable Mention and was sold at the same show!  It was a nice weekend!

This is a watercolor painting, approximately 10 x 14, done on Arches watercolor paper.

Marsh Maze

Marsh Maze
Velvet grasses stretch
amid a maze of waterways.
A peaceful stillness

I think marshes have a velvety beauty and I love to see the many pathways the water will take and the beautiful design that nature provides.  I hope you enjoy this peaceful scene done on 140# Arches watercolor paper.  It's one of my haiku paintings and measures 3 5.8 x 9 5.8".

Morning Light II

Morning Light
Birds stirring pre-dawn
to welcome the morning light
Joy greets the new day

Another little haiku painting representing the beginning of the day--lots of color in the sky and the sun's warmth beginning to illuminate the landscape.  This piece, 3.75 x 9.5" is done on 140# Arches watercolor paper.  I've matted it with a v-groove mat to 10 x 16".  Nature certainly is awesome and inspiring!

I love to do these small, moody paintings and I often write a haiku for them.  So here goes....

On the river bank
A quiet place to still your mind
And let your heart sing.

This watercolor, 3.5" x 9.375" was done on Arches 140# paper and will come matted in a 3" mat with a v-groove in 3/4" from the window opening.  This is not a specific place, but a product of imagination and experimentation--seems like a good thing to do from time to time!  Enjoy.
