Yellow Rose Watercolor Painting

Yellow Rose Watercolor Painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This was from a weekend drawing event on Wet Canvas for this weekend.

There was a very nice book read-a-thon, breakfast with the authors at the Rogers School in Fairhaven, Massachusetts yesterday that I attended with the author, Kiki Latimer, as well, for WaterFire Duck, which I illustrated, and her book "Islands of Hope" about Haiti. Marie O'Connor played the harp. The fifth graders at the school made pins to sell also to benefit Haiti -- all little houses--which they sold for $1. I also brought original paintings as well as sketches to show the children the progression from idea to final result. I also brought the original paintings for the new book "Bubble Butt" -- the scans went off to the printer this week. I will get back to you on when that children's book will be available.

I also did a bookmark with "Earth laughs in flowers" by Ralph Waldo Emerson written on it. I sometimes have little strips of paper left and it makes a perfect bookmark. This weekend I bought 2 pots of purple iris to sit on my window sill. Spring where are you?

Fruit of the Vine Watercolor Painting

Fruit of the Vine Watercolor Painting is 10 x 14 inches on Arches 140 pound paper, also from "weekend drawing event" at Wet Canvas.

This seems to me to be the only thing that will fit here:

I am the Vine, you are the branches.
When you're joined with me and I with you,
the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant.
Separated, you can't produce a thing.
John 15:5

Red Red Rose Watercolor Painting

Happy Valentine's Day..... Red Red Rose Watercolor Painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.


"O my luve is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
My love is like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.


As fair art thou, my bonny lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.


Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.


And fare thee weel, my only love!
And fare thee weel, awhile!
And I will come again, my love
Though it were ten thousand mile."
.....Robert Burns

Woman with Cat Watercolor Painting

As promised this is the second of the three images from last weeks weekend drawing event. This was a 'barn cat' and I loved the interaction between the woman and the cat in this. The paintings for the book (18 of them) went to a printer for scanning to be sent to the publisher. I left them there....it may sound silly but I felt like I was leaving my baby behind.

A thought today about our words

"Words are, of course, the
most powerful drug used
by mankind."
...Rudyard Kipling

Glass Reflections Watercolor Painting

Glass Reflections Watercolor Painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This and the next 2 paintings were done over the weekend and this week but I haven't got here to post them yet. This I did with no preliminary drawing, just some loose washes. All three of these painting were from Wet Canvas weekend drawing event, which I will be hosting myself in April. It's very interesting seeing how everyone picks a photo, or takes a photo and gives such a different interpretation to it. And it's fun.

If it's not fun you're doing it wrong.
...George Di Carlo
