In April 2012, I finished 5 paintings of Venice - images that appealed to me and reflected what I loved most about being in Venice.  I struggled with how to show the bright red of the gondola seat and the table cloths in the outdoor cafe.  I finally found that many layers of Winsor & Newton Winsor Red watercolor paint did the trick.  I've also become enamored of painting reflections in water.  Fun!!

Here's another recently completed painting entitled "Busy Bee." On a recent trip to Alaska, I photographed many of the beautiful wild flowers I saw as we were hiking. This image included a bee with the gorgeous blossoms.

New Still Life Painting

Here's a painting I recently completed. I was going to call it "Bread and Wine", but that sounded like it had a religious theme. Since the image contains part of an Italian wine bottle, I chose to call it "Vino e Pane."
