Welcome to my blog where you can view a sampling of my watercolor paintings and discover why for me, Art Is Instrumental. These, as well as many more in my studio, are for sale and looking for good homes!

Methods and Madness

Sometimes I paint fast and loose

Other times quite controlled

The subject decides the method

But each work has the same goal:

A painting that is successful

And beautiful to behold!

Grandmothers All

My vibrant sunflowers, once so spry

Have bent down a bit

Heaving a small sigh.

Arms now rest at their hips,

Heads no longer held high.

As they gather their skirts

With a knowing shrug

And tighten their bonnets,

In a sly little tug.....

Oh, they still love their quilting bees,

A Butterfly Ballet,

And fat golden finches,

Those hungry dine-ees.....

.Ahh, grandma sunflowers,

Now surely they be

Growing old so graciously.....

They're still beautiful to me.
