This 2.5 x 3.5 ATC was also done for the WetCanvas project. One of the participants really loves windows and old buildings, so I did this one especially for her. Again I used one of my own photos taken in Venice.

This is another ATC (2.5 x 3.5) that I did for the WetCanvas project. It was done in ink and watercolor from my photos taken in Italy. I was driving and saw this colorful building and had to stop to take photos. Most of the buildings in the area were beige and tan stone buildings, so the color of this one really stood out.

This ATC (2.5 x 3.5) was done in ink & watercolor for a WetCanvas project. I used a reference photo I had taken looking inland in Santa Barbara, California. I love palm trees and terra cotta roofs, so this was a perfect combination of the two subjects.

This is my first larger (11 x 14) painting for 2008. It was done from a reference photo I took in Maine over Christmas. I love the rustic, peeling effect of the red barn against the white of the snow. The barn belongs to my sister and her husband. They've done a lot of work on the inside of the barn, so I figured I'd better do a painting of it before they get around to repainting the outside.

This ATC (2.5 x 3.5) was sent to Meimei from WetCanvas as part of our project. I used several of my photos of Tuscany to incorporate the yellow flowers, the background hills, the vineyard, and the villa into one painting. I wanted to make sure it was a bit different from the larger paintings of Tuscany that I've done, which are here in the older posts.

Can you believe that this was done with the exact same colors as the "Regal Rooster" below? This 11 x 14 watercolor was also done for the "Toucan Challenge" on WetCanvas. The reference photo was taken at my favorite farm stand on the north fork of Long Island. I loved all the apple baskets on the tables.
