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.

I have always adored the vibrant color palette of the Macaw's feathers for many years. This is my first attempt at painting this species of bird, and it was a fun learning experience.

Title or Location: Chula Vista - Sunset View Park
Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.
