 This watercolor is inspired by two photographs I took last year. One is the house the other is the fence.

Cut up Watercolor Art

 What do you do when you don't like your watercolor? I cut it up into pieces that I do like.

Making Summer Pans

Wednesday, January 1, 2020


Between Christmas and New Years I found some time to make some watercolors. I mostly am in a monotone phase.

Ink and markers on bristol paper. I am not happy with my mountains. Again I love doing skinny size art work.

10 Years of Blogging

I can't believe this blog has been hanging around for 10 years.I did get lazy and gave up on it for about 4 years! Looking at my past artwork I have posted here and great deal of it was gifted, traded, and sold to the lowest bidder. I was encourage by a friend to "put your stuff out there". I mostly use this space as "art therapy" for me, and I hope some minor enjoyment for those who visit or pass through.

Skinny Artwork

I love to draw, paint, ink narrow skinny artwork. This is a picture of an old farmhouse I passed in Illinois several years ago. It was a cold rainy day when I took the picture

Brown Book

I started this book in 2014. I found it at Dick Blick in San Francisco. It has paper the color of a paper bag. The first couple of pages I sampled different colored pencils, inks and watercolor. The paper was susceptible to bleed on the back side. I decided to do all my artwork on the right side of the page.

This picture and the three below were inspired by a road trip from
Fort Worth, Tx to San Francisc, Ca

After watching some video games I came up with some characters.

This is the beginning of 2015

A child's drawing book by Ed Emberley inspired these two pages
