NEWS SPRING

My newest painting is Poetic Peony, on a half sheet of Lanaquarelle cold pressed watercolor paper. It is a circular design with a limited palette of a few pinks, blues and a bit of yellow.. I painted in sections, wetting an area and charging color in, letting the colors mingle on the surface. More paint was added for darks as the surface became less wet. I softened many edges as I painted, to give movement to the painting.

I presently have no workshops scheduled. Any future ones will probably be local. I do have 4 digital books, a hard cover book and 2 videos on this site for those who want to see information about how I paint, my materials and more. There is also painting information in the archived issues of the Seasonal Notes from other seasons.

You can view a variety of my paintings on the gallery pages. Many of these are still available for sale. Contact me if you are interested in information about a particular painting.
