Chorus of Fish Watercolor Painting

Chorus of Fish watercolor painting is a large painting - 18 x 24 inches on Arches hot press paper.   This is for a match to the Reef painting, a special request from my daughter to paint for her living room, so not for sale.   I've been working on this painting for 4 days now and I think it may be done.   

From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. 
He is bolted to Earth. But man only has to sink beneath the surface and he is free.
-Jacques Cousteau

Number 8 Watercolor Painting

Number 8 watercolor painting is 12.5 by 24 inches on Arches 140 pound watercolor paper, finished last night after debating what to do with those "ghost riders" --whether to finish them with color, or not. I decided not. This was also inspired by last weekends WDE at Wet Canvas. The only negative about viewing art on a computer monitor, besides color variations, is the size is deceiving. This is a large painting and it's effect, because of it's size, is different in real life.

A book signing tonight at Mystic Aquarium for "Bubble Butt, The Challenged Sea Turtle of Mystic Aquarium" at their member's night from 5 - 8 pm. The author will be reading the book in the area near Charlotte's (a/k/a Bubble Butt) tank, followed by the book signing after in the book store. If you are in the area, come over and say hello.

This Saturday at WaterFire in Providence, voted one of the top 50 vacation spots, the author and I will be signing "The WaterFire Duck"
at that evening's events. Besides the flames all along the river, ballroom dancing will be there and around the corner from our location jazz, and hopefully Little Duck will be there.

Charging Rhino Watercolor Painting

Charging Rhino watercolor painting - 10 x 14 inches on Arches 140 pound paper - is from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event. There was a challenge to use only primary colors, so I picked some 'dots' that I recently received from Daniel Smith to try - Mayan colors. I didn't have enough to finish this though, so I picked some colors close to them - Perinone Orange, Winsor blue. Definitely takes the painting out of the grey range.

Interesting that I read this today from Courage to Change al-anon, dealing with anger, which kind of fits with the charging rhino.....

"Feeling our feelings in one important part of the recovery process.
Learning how to balance feelings with appropriate action is another.
'When angry, count ten before you speak;
if very angry an hundred.'
Thomas Jefferson"

Block Island Day Watercolor Painting

Block Island Day watercolor painting is 10 x 14 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This is looking down at Corneck Road on the Island....not sure what the name of this little body of fresh water is, but I have painted at that bridge area below also-- but it was plein air and I don't believe I ever posted the painting. If you turn 90 degrees to the north from this view, this is another view from that spot. It's a beautiful well preserved island with lots of hiking trails and nature preserves.

they're yours."

Santa Barbara Mission Watercolor Painting

Santa Barbara Mission watercolor is 10 x 12 on Pastelmat 170 lb paper. It's very difficult controling the paint on this paper ....the term 'go with the flow' fits here! Nothing is as I originally planned it....what a life lesson there.... but it is what it is. This is from a July painting challenge from A Day Not Wasted I found it an intriguing image....seems like there should be a story to go along with this...

if you do not understand, things are just as they are."

Pink Roses Watercolor Painting

Pink Roses watercolor painting is 5 x 7 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This was a larger painting which I didn't like because of the composition so I cropped it - one of the advantages of watercolor....

Blue Jay Watercolor Painting

Blue Jay watercolor painting is 5 x 7 inches on Fabriano 140 pound paper. I have read they are called the 'police' of the bird neighborhood, and witnessed their warning of danger and attacking if necessary. Fierce little guys - even dressed in blue!
