Mr. Lincoln In Front- SOLD

"Mr. Lincoln In Front "
watercolor (12" x 9")

Yep, that's Mr. Lincoln in front,
Princess Caroline in the center,
Audrey Hephurn in rear left,
and I think there is a Cary Grant in there,
 plus few others I can't remember.
How fun was it to paint these roses!
One of my private students brought these for us to paint,
I got such a kick that she was growing all these in her garden,
and she knew all their names!

El Encanto, A Quiet Entry

"El Encanto, A Quiet Entry"
watercolor (6" x 6")

Another painting from our lovely Santa Barbara get away....
There are so many quaint and decadent bungalows at El Encanto,
it's a good thing we didn't have to choose which one to stay in.
This cottage wasn't ours...but can't you just picture 
the "Ahhh..." when you walk through the door?

Today's piece is available at Chemers Gallery.

overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

stay tuned.

El Encanto, Welcome

"El Encanto, Welcome"
watercolor (16" x 12")

Picture this.....a fantastically luxurious romantic resort,
in the Santa Barbara Riviera...over looking the Pacific Ocean.
Warm sun, cool ocean breezes, birds chirping away.
Delightfully lush grounds, superb restaurant and a ridiculous spa.
What could make this even better?
When your husband sends you ahead on the train so you can enjoy
the peace and quiet (and spa) in solitude.
More please......

Walking the Dog, Hollywood Beach- SOLD

One of the delights of having private lessons 
is that my students often will say 
"let's paint this"....and I get excited to do it!
