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.
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."
