"Backyard Chicks"  watercolor on Arches 140 lb.
A painting of my son and daughter in law's chickens which I raised as baby chicks for them.  Sadly the two gold ones are gone now but Zulo the black chicken is still queen of the roost.  She now has 2 new chick sisters.  I painted this while on duty at The Gallery at Patriot Place last month.

"Country Cabbage"
I recently purchased this long narrow watercolor pad approximately 6x12 its fun because it forces a different perspective,  it made this cabbage more dramatic for sure.

"Beach Rocks"  something I think I'm going to try with my upcoming spring class.  I first painted shapes and shadows with a few washes of blended Burnt Sienna and Cobolt Blue then added the local color.  I had a photo but was liberal about following it and totally made up the colors for drama and design.

Did you see that sunrise today!!!!!

"Shadow Dancing"  these are pretty little vases I borrowed from a friend seeing them with their long winter shadows.  The glass features tiny little crackles that I was afraid to paint to many of because I thought it might just be to picky.  Love painting shadows and so happy to be painting again after a long dry spell :-)
