Clam Bar

This was done in ink & watercolor. It is 7 x 10 and was painted in plein air. This is a local clam bar at a marina on the Great South Bay here on Long Island. A perfect spot for the sun, the breeze, a cocktail, and a bit of seafood.

Beach Patio

I spend a lot of time at the beach during the summer. This was done in plein air and is a small 4 x 6 little painting. I have to be quick to capture people at the tables before they get up. This was done in pen & watercolors.

Porch With Baskets

I did this 7 x 10 watercolor of the porch of a restaurant in Port Jefferson. I always love hanging baskets or pots of flowers. They give such color to any location.

Autumn Shores

This 7 x 10 watercolor was done for the Weekend Drawing Event on WetCanvas. I liked the overhanging branch and that distant shoreline.

Stone Bridge

This painting is 7 x 10 and was done in Hecksher Park. I loved the stone bridge to the little island in the middle of the lake. I plan to go back and do another view of the park.

A Day at the Beach

This started out as just a small pen & ink sketch, but sort of grew while I was sitting there at the beach. It's small (5 x 7) and not even on watercolor paper. It's in my sketchbook. I used watercolor paints for the color.

Garden Bouquet

This is a 7 x 10 watercolor done for the Weekend Drawing Event on WetCanvas. The reference photo was from a garden in the Netherlands. I couldn't resist the vibrant colors and the trees in the background.

Iris Garden

This 7 x 10 watercolor was done in plein aire this week at an iris garden in NJ. I must give thanks to my sister for finding this place for us. I loved the white chair amid all the colorful flowers. I wish I had time to do more than one painting while she and I were there.
