5th and Sycamore, Santa Ana

"5th and Sycamore, Santa Ana"
watercolor (20" x 10")
available at Chemers Gallery

I love to take the ordinary and make it something more...
to find the beauty in it
or to show it in a new perspective.
It would be great if this were the philosophy that we all could take on in life...
with the people we meet, the family we have or the circumstances that fall upon us.
Yes, to find the beauty within
 and to see life with new perspectives.

I Will Take That One

"I Will Take That One"
watercolor (5" x 10")

Today's painting was done as a demo for my Saturday morning students.
The pears were these sweet little red and green ones 
(talking about "sweet", my husband ran to the store and picked them out for our class).
Anyway, I lined them up...played with composition a bit...and painted away!
Its a fun class, we actually have an opening for the April session. 
Would you like to join us?

"I Will Take That One" is available.

Mission Arches

"Mission Arches"
watercolor (6" x 6")

Something so peaceful about today's painting.
Is it the suggestion of the cool shade?
The simplicity of the portico?
Or that it simply is a mission?

Just Because- SOLD

"Just Because"
watercolor (6" x 6")

Don't you just love when a dear friend or a loved one gives you something
and it's "just because"?
...not a thank you, not an occasion...just because of you being you.
How can you not feel the love or gratitude directed toward you?
Well, today you deserve a "just because"...enjoy!
