Light Breeze

With open windows

A light breeze moves inside house

Clearing summer’s still.

Art Prescription: it’s so wonderful to have windows open! Great walking weather.

I listed this cute snowman Stitch Kit in my Etsy shop!

Watercolor in the Garden

I led a watercolor sketching class this morning at the NC Botanical Garden.

We wore masks and practiced social distancing.

And oh how wonderful to be in a place full of beauty.

I did quick demos of three techniques: watercolor brush, watercolor pencil, and negative painting.

Here is my demo piece reworked with layers of watercolor and pen and ink.

Dog-gone Good News!!!

Hello friends,

Remember a while back I posted about a missing dog? Well, she’s been found and returned home!!

Tomorrow would be 35 days since she went missing. What a romp through the woods this girl had. What a survivor!

Meanwhile in the studio:


Morning Air is crisp

Grass wet from dew on my shoes

Coffee on the porch.

Art Prescription: Oh how lovely these mornings!

Still working on call out from my agent for a mate to my last painting.
