The Wizard and I

To celebrate our big birthdays (I won't reveal how old) my daughter invite us to New York city for four days, watch US Tennis Open during the day and broadway show at night. It was great.

Vasquez Rock

I went with my hiking group on a day trip this spring. Our last destination  is Vasquez Rock Nature Park in the high dessert near Agua Dulce Spring, ca. It has spectacular rock and stone formation. I painted this from the picture I took.

Pink Poppy

One summer we went to my friend's beach house in Sequim, WA to catch some Dungense crabs and digging clams. While others were hard working digging clams, I discovered this poppy at the back of her house. They are more like roses with multiple layers of pedal, pretty to look at but hard to paint.

A Study

I went to the CCAA painting group and did this of a live model. This is my third study in this monthly painting group. I have overcome my anxiety this time and concentrate on drawing, mixing color and painting all in three hours. I have much to learn but I enjoy the session.

At the Farmer's Market

Kids are fun to paint. They always had fun wherever they are. This is the Saturday Farmer's Market in Sequim, Washington.
