Welcome, Visitors

This blog is here, so I may as well use it to display the art pieces I create. More than four years after I started, my main medium is still graphite and colored pencil, but I am also now experimenting with watercolor paints. Such pieces as I deem worthy will be displayed here, however, after posting the few back-dated pieces, my postings may not be too regular. I've been known to destroy unfinished pieces I do not like or to just not finish those pieces and move on to something else.

The Village

The outline to this painting came from Terry Madden's Watercolor Workshop 1100 series Volume 1... but instead of following instructions given in the book, I decided to pretty much do my own thing... playing with colors.  My original version of this painting hangs in my living room.

13 x 9.5 inches watercolor on Blick Studio Fabriano watercolor paper.


  1. thanks for visiting! I added my first completely and poorly done tangle, LOL. figured needed a pic and can't use someone elses.. oh my. well might as well expose myself right?
    Meanwhile, I still love this one, makes me think of going on a cruise again. Someday!!

  2. I love this! So bright and cheerful and very well painted. I've not had the courage to move into watercolours yet.

  3. Hi Beth,

    I had the encouragement and the opportunity to draw on the expertise of my mother-in-law. Without her, I'd still be afraid to do more than pick up a pencil...
