Nobody Here But Us Chickens Watercolor Painting

 Nobody Here But Us Chickens watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper, from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.     Sorry I haven't been posting as much, but am working on an afghan for my oldest grandson and his fiance.   I'd rather be painting..... In case you're wondering where the expression comes from - I had no idea this was a song -- this is Wikipedia's answer:

"Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" is a 1946 song with music and lyrics by Alex Kramer and Joan Whitney. It was recorded by Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five. The single hit number one on the R&B Juke Box chart and number six on the pop chart.[1] The B-side, a song entitled "Let the Good Times Roll", peaked at number two on the R&B Juke Box chart.

Twin Water Lilies Watercolor Painting


Twin Water Lilies watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches140 lb paper.  It is, of course, just one flower but reflected in the water.   I had to sign this so I would know which side was up.  :)
O light beheld as through refracting tears.
Here is the aura of that world
each of us has lost.
Here is the shadow of its joy.
Robert Hayden, Monet's Water Lilies

Still Life With Fruit and Glass Watercolor Painting

 Still Life With Fruit and Glass watercolor painting is 12 x 16 inches and is from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.   How I feel about this painting is pretty much summed up in the quote below:

The simplicity of form, the drama of rich, intense colour, 
the joy of challenge, and the challenge of endurance... 
The piece, when it is over, is not what is made, but how it is made.

Hanging Plant/Butterfly Watercolor Painting

Hanging Plant and Butterfly watercolor painting is 10 x 10 inches, on Arches 140 lb paper.  

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
