Vintage Shelby Cobra

"Vintage Shelby Cobra"
watercolor (12" x 16")

A couple of weeks ago I painted a demo for Chemers Gallery.
It was concurrent with the Enderle Center Car Show...
so, of course, I saw it fitting to do an auto...
this fast red one is what came out.

Blue Shutters at La Quinta Resort-Sold!

"Blue Shutters at La Quinta Resort"
Watercolor (6" x 6")

La Quinta Resort and Spa is a historic hotel established in 1926.
It was originally built as a series of bungalows on 45 acres of fruit trees,
located at the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains (near Palm Springs, Ca).
Now its a "go-to" place for golf and tennis tournaments, weekend get aways, 
and lounging in any one of their 43 pools!

One of my latest commissions is to capture La Quinta Resort for the 2013 Provident Bank Calendar.
Today's painting and the next few ones are warm ups to get me in the right place for the bigger piece.

Chinatown, San Francisco- SOLD!

"Chinatown, San Francisco"
watercolor (12" x 12")

Do you ever get one of those "ah ha" moments?
Where you know that things are just gonna go in a certain direction?
For me (and my faith)...this a God moment....a beautiful moment to take in.
These moments may be huge life changers
 or a seemingly insignificant instant...
but all the while beautiful because I feel God's presence.
Today's painting was a beautiful "ah ha" moment for me.
Here's hoping you have a few "ah ha" moments today!
