Mostly new…watercolors. Working on some more, but it’s a crunch between writing and painting right now. Feel restless. Perhaps I need turkey.
I like to do marine paintings, but I need more research on these.
watercolor….somewhere in Italy
Not so new, a few years ago as I started to change from oils to watercolor.
The cover painting for “White Cranes of Heaven”, Lulu.com, 2011. There are 12 more paintings in that book, mostly watercolor.
No particular place, just made up. However, there I would have maybe 5 sheep, three dogs, Collies perhaps, and a passel of cats. And they all would live in the left side of this old stone cottage. LOL! Quite a mess.
Another marine painting. This was actually a ship used for coal up til 1958. Amazing.
I don’t know why that happened, but I’m too tired to figure out how to fix. The first painting is a few years ago, and the second one is one I just started a few months ago. Needs a lot of work. There are TWO birds on that plant. The hard work comes with modelling the birds, the leaves are easier. Sort of.
Blurry. This is pup Daphne last year. She’s just 2 now. She was found, with her sister on an exit ramp here in Atlanta on the expressway. People saw this car dump these two 3 month old babies and leave. The people behind them scooped them up and took them to Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta. I came in looking for a dashie, and stopped to look at the passel of puppies. Daphne was under a bunch of bigger pups. She had green eyes. That did it for me and I adopted her immediately. Went back for her sister but she was already adopted. She’s a German Shorthaired Pointer. Her bay is like the Hound of the Baskervilles. Would wake the dead. Wonderful doggie and just so affectionate. Destroys every blanket and pillow and toy around, but now…finally, she’s grown out of that. Naps with a cat on the couch during the afternoon.
