Glads & Apples

This 4 x 6 ink and watercolor was done at one of the local farm stands here on Long Island. It is a wonderful place to find color and subjects galore. I sat on the pumpkin display as I painted this.

Delta Flight 107

This was my final painting that I did before leaving Germany. I had hoped to add a few more people to this picture, but the Delta crew moved us to a different waiting area and I missed it. This is 4 x 6 done in ink & watercolor.

Boujolais and Roses

This painting is 4 x 6 and was done from a collection of items in my nephew's kitchen during our visit there in October... a leftover wine bottle and roses from my husband. A charming blend!

Joe's Opera Rehearsal

OK, it isn't a watercolor, but it was something that was part of the trip to Germany. My nephew, Joe, has a position singing with the Dusseldorf Opera Company. We didn't get to see him perform while we were there, but we did sit in on one of his rehearsals. I did a sketch of him and his piano player.

The Boys

When we were in Germany it was too cold to paint outdoors. So I decided I needed to paint from inside Joe & Kathleen's apartment (my nephew & his wife). These 3 are their "boys"...Cooper, Mouth, and Bear. The dogs were out on the balcony looking through the window of the kitchen door.It is my first dog portrait and is 4 x 6. I gave it to Joe & Kathleen before I left.

Beach View Playa Romana

"Beach View Playa Romana" is a 4 x 6 painting done with pen and watercolor. I loved the little thatched shaded umbrella on this lonely stretch of beach.

"Toward the Town" & "Seaside Playa Romana"

Both of these painting were done while sitting in almost the same area. "Seaside Playa Romana" (top painting) is 4 x 6 and shows some of the Moorish influence on the architecture of Spain. "Toward the Town" is 4 x 6 and shows some of the native plants found along the beach in this area.

Castellon Villa

This 4 x 6 ink and watercolor was done in Spain. I love the white building against the blue sky and the green bushes. I'm ready to move in there.

Rocks and Sea

This 4 x 6 ink and watercolor was done in Spain. I think it was the first time I use ink to capture the waves and the movement of the water.

"Needs Work"

This is one of my favorite paintings that I did in Spain. There was just something about this little run-down gem that captured my heart. All it needs is a little love and a lot of work. This is 4 x 6 done with ink and watercolor.

Habitat Playa Romana & Playa Roman View

Both of these 4 x 6 paintings were done at our resort in Alcossebre, Spain. I did these from our big 3rd floor balcony. I love the tiled roofs and the palm trees.

At the Sea

This 4 x 6 painting was done from the balcony of my hotel in Castellon, Spain. I loved the tiled roof and the wall around the pool with the wonderful trees.
