This year I started teaching one day workshops.  Each workshop covered a different aspect of watercolor painting.  How to apply glazes and a color value study were a couple of examples.  At the end of the workshop the ladies left with new skills and a good nearly completed watercolor painting.  They really enjoyed themselves as did I.  I am looking forward to teaching other workshops in the fall.  If this interests you  let me know by using my contact page.

I did these two Elk paintings on different days.  I call this kind of painting “Fast and Furious.”
I had just completed a commission piece and wanted to loosen up and have some fun.
I completed these pieces in three hours, start to finish.

New Projects


I have started a couple new paintings recently.  One of them is a painting of Orchids.  I enjoy using the bright colors that bring the flowers to life.  I received such positive comments on “My Girlfriends Boots” that I have started another boot painting.  I hope you enjoy them.

Masa Paper

Masa Paper 2Masa Paper 3I am always trying new things to improve my skills and artistry.  These paintings are done on masa paper which is a type of rice paper.  To begin I get the paper very wet than crinkle it which breaks up the fibers. Than I use ink and watercolors for the painting.  Because the paper is so wet the paint bleeds through to the other side.  I than added to the back side create a scene on that side also.  I am still working to improve and complete this one.
