Hydrangea Explosion

Hydrangea Explosion, watercolor 7 1/1 x 9 1/2

This is my version of a hydrangea. It was mainly done by painting the negative space. First I painted a swirl of colors and then tried to find some sort of shape. Somehow my mind found hydrangeas....

Garden Gate

Garden Gate
Original Watercolor
11 x 15

This poem by Amber A Whitman was an inspiration for the painting of this original watercolor. Enjoy a walk in the garden.

The Garden Gate

Open the garden gate
Butterflies float gently on the breeze as they flutter by
Emerald tones of grass blanket the ground.
Rose's trail and twist on the broken trellis.
Petals glisten and radiate rainbow blooms
Tiny birds flit across your path
The sun warms your face.
This is utopia
Open the garden gate

My first beach picture!

I love to go on vacation in the Florida panhandle.
This takes me to the wonderful white sugar sands of the Gulf Coast.

Cup of Tea

Cup of Tea, watercolor 7 1/2 x 9 1/2

Daylight savings times always makes me feel a little out of kilter. There is nothing nothing like a cup of tea and a nap to put life back in balance.

Entangled, original watercolor 11 x 15

This watercolor painting was so fun to paint. I painted the negative space. It is very relaxing to paint the negative space. Plus purple is one of my favorite colors.

Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the Air, original watercolor 11 x 15

I finally finished this piece. I really struggled with the foreground, middleground and background. I feel that middleground looks to much like the background. The background looks like the middleground. The more I tried to fix it the worse it got. So. . . I finally quit and let it be.
