Laguna Beach, plein air

"Laguna Beach, plein air"
watercolor (9" x 12")

Well this is what I have to show for yesterday....what a lovely day!
2 hours drive there, 2 hour drive back....but 4 hrs of PAINTERS BLISS!
So glad I committed to paint with Kim VanDerHoek's group....
A habit, and comfortableness is forming for plein air
so imagine how easy it will be for me going in my own area 
(not driving 4 hours total every Thursday).
Sometimes we just need that structure and accountability 
to push us forward. Thanks Kim!

Today's piece of PAINTERS BLISS is available....just email me.

Old Towne Orange, plein air

"Old Towne Orange, plein air"
watercolor (9" x 12")

Every Thursday for the month of April I have and will be been joining Kim VanDerHoek's plein air group down in Orange County. Last Thursday we set up in the traffic circle of Old Town Orange. Great fun. As most of you know, painting plein air is quite different than painting in the luxury and comforts of your studio. I find it so much more intense, and for a watercolorist...so much more challenging as the paint/paper behaves so differently out in the elements...ah but still great fun! This week we are going to Laguna Beach...so keep a look out for a plein air seascape later this week.

"Old Towne Orange, plein air" is available....email me if you are interested.

Balboa Island, plein air- Sold!

"Balboa Island, plein air" 
watercolor (9" x 12")
SOLD

Something about that little boat...just waiting for someone to hop into it...
Where would you go?
Would you go far far away?
or would you just drift along the coast line?
Would you close your eyes and take a nap?
Would you read a good book?
or would you just enjoy the passing scenery?

Come...let's hop in that little boat....even just for a minute.

Whatcha Lookin At?

"Whatcha Lookin' At?"
watercolor (6" x 6")

Ever get caught staring at something, or worse yet, someone?
This fella seems to be glaring back at us...saying "Whatcha Lookin' At?"
Well my reply would be, "just your pretty feathers and red cone, Mr Rooster"

What to Do?

"What to Do?"
watercolor (16" x 12")

What do you do when you have lost your way?
What do you do when you have lost your inspiration?
What do you do when you have gotten caught up in the details?

I loosen up...And if it has to do with painting, 
I paint flowers...I paint flowers with lots of colors!

Today's piece is available, email me if interested
