Tee Time

 

As with most artists, I'm influenced by my surroundings.  Here are two that I started last fall, but reflect what I'm up to these days when I'm not painting or picking.

Egret 

Taking a break from the snow, I'm taking inspiration from my new locale  I apologize if my timing stinks for those of you up North...but I just completed my first bird for the season. "Egret" is watercolor on Yupo paper, sized at 12"x9".

More Big Sky Inspiration

Skiing is a way of life there, so how could I resist trying to grab the action. The next two images are my attempt at capturing skiers knee deep in powder.

Grizzly on Yupo 

I haven't used Yupo paper for a while, but did pack a pad in with my painting supplies for a family visit to Big Sky, Montana. This change of scenery moved me to experiment a bit and after a few days of pencil sketching I broke out the Yupo and the watercolors.  We spent a day in Yellowstone National Park viewing wildlife and though we didn't see a grizzly bear, something motivated me to do this one that I call "Waking Up".
