Title or Location: Untitled
Part of what makes this one of my favorite pieces was I knew when to stop. I tend to overly fuss with pieces, continuing with touch-up to the point where I end up making a mess of what had been a great piece. But with this one, I stopped even though I still had the itch to fix the "imperfections," and it's all the better for it.

Title or Location: Mr. Fish
Painted this in an Alexis Cant? online watercolor class. Just starting to venture into the watercolor world, this painting is in memory of a great fish friend I had - Mr. Fish. He was just a tiny little goldfish when I put him in my outdoor pond and in 3 years he was a giant beautiful fancy goldfish. He had great personality to.

Title or Location: Vast Landscape - Sky Study
This piece is a 9 x 12 inch watercolor on Fabriano 140lb cold-pressed paper. This was a result of practicing skyscapes for a commission, added to the "reject" pile. When the commissioned artwork was finished, I went through my pile of practice paintings and was so surprised by this sky. I fell in love with it. The landscape was added to compliment the sky, imaging the view of a bird in flight. It remains one of my favorite watercolor pieces, a reminder of success over perceived failure.

Title or Location: Fonte Pequena, Alte, Portugal
Alte is a village in the Mountains above the Algarve in Portugal. I visited the village to sketch the natural springs and bathing pools, which the village is famous for. The crystal clear waters of the pools, the stone and white painted buildings and the bubbling springs provide many opportunities for sketching and painting. A great day there and lots of inspiration for future paintings.

Title or Location:
This is a love scene that is inspired by a Chinese show I am currently watching: The forbidden flower. I took it as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn how to draw two whole bodies profiles and practice on how to draw a hand for the fist time! The most difficult part was to find the exact distance for her hand to fall into his. I hope it evokes love to all of you. Many friends have requested a follow up to this Confession saga, so I am currently working on The Answer to The Confessio

Title or Location: Relax and Feel the Calm
This is a water color painting based on a photo I took last year when visiting MT. Love the wide open spaces and the beautiful sky. This photo was taken while sitting and relaxing along a river in Bigfork. Love to enjoy the views and then incorporate into my paintings. Water colors are such a great choice for landscapes because of the way they flow and blend together just like nature.

Title or Location: Indian Trail, NC
At the age of 49, I decided to learn to paint. I have never even sketched or painted in my life. I love watercolor paintings so I started with that and I found that I love it. In February I committed to the 100 Day Project movement with D. Michelle Perry on her 100 Days of Wonder group. Each week she was giving us our Words of Wonder for each day. Day 35 was "Dew". I had already practiced water droplets for fun so I wanted to use them in a close up image of a leaf with dew on it. Th
