A Parisienne Afternoon

"A Parisienne Afternoon"
watercolor (12" x 12")

I have been dreaming of a vacation:
...warm waters with cool ocean breezes?
...or the serenity and nurturing of the mountains?
...or the culture, architecture and stimulating life of a fashionable European city?

This heart lays in Paris.
Wont you come with me?
even just for this brief moment.

"A Parisienne Afternoon" is available

Before Opening, Balboa Island Fun Zone

"Before Opening, Balboa Island Fun Zone"
watercolor (12" x 12")

Yikes...I do realize it has been a while since I have posted.
It seems life is in transition for me and my family.
We have moved, but havent found our next home yet. 
What does that mean?
 Well, we are in a lovely vacation home overlooking the arroyo (Rose Bowl area) in Pasadena ....
While everything we own is in storage
 (minus the essentials like some clothing, my chef's knives, veggie juicer and, 
of course,  my painting supplies)
I think this has thrown off my rhythm a bit...
all good, just some things have gone on the way side.
Anyway, I hope Spring is getting into high gear for you all...its lovely over here.

Today's piece is available at Chemers Gallery

The Shore's Delight

"The Shore's Delight"
watercolor (7" x 10")

Today's painting was done as a demo for a private student.
The lesson for her was to see the shapes and values
getting atmospheric perspective
....and playing with the color.
I think we had a bit more fun with the color!

Mt. Rubidoux Hike

"Mt. Rubidoux Hike"
watercolor (6" x 6")

This is the 4th year I have been commissioned to do the Provident Bank calendar.
Every year around the beginning of summer the CEO of the bank calls me up
and tells me that year's subject. 
There are 20 or so Provident Bank branches around the Riverside county 
and extending into Palm Springs area...
so he picks vistas/subjects that are relevant to the times or to those areas.
This year was Mount Rubidoux in Riverside, Ca.

Today's painting was painted as one of the insets for the calendar, 
and it can be yours, if you are interested. click here.

Butch's Smile

"Butch's Smile"
watercolor (18" x 24")

I had the most amazing experience...a few weeks back.
For my birthday, my husband and daughter took me to a very special place.
Vision Quest/Wild Things Ranch and B&B in Salinas, Ca.
We stayed in a tented/bungalow (my husband called it "glamping")
which over looks an elephant sanctuary.
We fed lions, tigers, and elephants, and 
then washed a ginormous sweet elephant called Butch.
Experiences beyond words...but maybe the paintbrush can capture.

Want to learn more about Vision Quest Ranch? watch this little video I found on You Tube, 
or click here for their website.

watercolor (6" x 6")

Just down the road from us is our local park and community garden.
At least once a season, I like to sneak in...(yes, I did just say "sneak")
and peak at what all the gardeners are growing.
Sometimes a photo-op arises,
a sometimes a painting comes of that!

"Gardening" is available,
click here if you are interested.

Tulips and Art Pottery Vase

"Tulips and Art Pottery Vase"
watercolor (12" x 9")

"Mr. Lincoln in Front" (12" x 9")

Something about the freshness of this piece I like.
It reminds me of "Mr. Lincoln In Front" that I did recently.
Actually, I think they make good companion pieces.

email me, if you are interested in seeing 
either of these fresh pieces on your wall.
