Ode to Joe

My best friend in Jr High School nursed back to health a crow/raven named Joe. He stayed around their house for years following them back and forth to and from the school bus...this is my Ode to Joe.

Mother Nature sings Hallelujah

Sunflowers always seem to me to be nature's Hallelujah Chorus!
This is watercolor on 300 lb cold press watercolor paper.

Morning in the Skagit Valley

I had such a great day yesterday painting with my friends Evelyn, Marie and Carl. This was one of the watercolors I worked on before we switched to making jewelry and collages.

Anywhere I Hang My Hat is Home

My Nibblefest entry for July.
5"X7" watercolor
I was working on another painting and heard the song "Anywhere I Hang My Hat is Home" on our local jazz station and came up with the idea for this painting.

I painted this during several short work night sessions. My favorite part was just playing with the magic of watercolors in the lower portion of the painting - splattering with water and adding a little salt to create texture...fun!

Paws for Massage

Here's the finished painting...

Massage Instructor

Here's what's on my easel today - this is the initial sketch for a watercolor painting I'm working on. This is one of my husband's massage instructors (he's going to massage school - lucky me!). He asked me to do a little painting of her with her dog as a gift.
