Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

As The Sun Came Over The Hill

This was one of those magical mornings, very still, still cool, a curious doe wondering what that human was doing. I barely put the paint on the paper, it all happened by itself!

What I Saw

What I saw when I looked out from the deck, a half moon hanging over an early evening sun-warmed landscape. Grapevines growing wildly at the edge of the deck trying to grab all the attention, bold things!
10" x 12 1/2" and a new price for this larger size - $250

July 18, late morning

I've had the flu all week, and this morning I finally found enough energy to leave the house and paint! I had been dreaming of doing just this during my fever. This is a sun struck section of road and fence in Briceland, light bouncing everywhere. Just what I needed.
Normally the paintings I post are scanned and the resulting images are completely true to the original-solid ; but this image is from a photo I took at the site which is why it appears so pale. I thought it was kinda poetic but maybe it's a reflection of my feverish state!

June 30, 7 PM

As the title suggests, this watercolor is about the light of a summer late afternoon on the river bar,  the river and the firs and alders which are the deep bass backdrop to this scene. Though I was painting this warm light, I was standing in shade and got very chilly!
