Greetings…Today’s post are two pieces of art from a few years back. I’ve had a good friend visiting for the past few days and I haven’t put pen to paper.

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week.

Saguaro #2

Good Morning Wednesday….On Monday,  I posted a watercolor Saguaro and I intended to duplicate the sketch with acrylic….but I ended up taking a different direction. I used an existing canvas I had. It had been covered with crinkled tissue paper. As I painted over the canvas, I left some of the orange tissue paper visible and incorporate the color into the painting.

Size: 20″ x 16″ acrylic

Cheers and have a creative Wednesday.

Watercolor Practice

Good morning… below are a couple of watercolor practice pieces. They are both 5” x 7”. My practice was specifically for blending and layering color. Watercolor has never ending surprises and it is a life long endeavor.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday.



I do like to draw and paint suns…When I’m traveling about I always take pictures of the artistic suns I see. These photos help to inspire my watercolors.

Here is the original

with some posterization added

Bull Thistle

I love the color pink, so the “very pink” Bull Thistle was perfect to draw and paint. My model is from a picture I had taken up on Mt. Charleston near Las Vegas.

I hope you are all in the PINK…have a great day!
