Sunset Watercolor Painting

Sunset watercolor painting (9 x 12) is from a beautiful photo reference my nephew in Florida took.   The painting almost ended up in the trash with me declaring defeat on this deceivingly 'simple' watercolor.  I washed the paper out and started almost from scratch.  Many years ago my first 'plein air' painting at a local bridge on a beautiful day in May, an elderly gentlemen slowly and with much effort  made his way down a hill to where I sat and then gave me some art advice.  He told me to take the painting, which he said was too dark, and 'give it a bath'.   I took his advice and was pleased to find that what remained looked beautiful.   Sometimes painting involves removing things....  :)  

Sometimes there's not a better way. Sometimes there's only the hard way.”

Put it Right Here - baseball catcher pose in watercolor (9 x12) on Arches 140 pound paper.   My ten year old grandson is in his team's Little League's playoffs now.  The only thing better than a day in June is a day in June at the baseball field.  :)

Heal of the Hand Book Signing and Presentation


Heal of the Hand book signing, presentation and fundraiser/awareness for Haiti.  Five percent of the book sales will go to Partners in Health to help Haiti.

This is a children's book about the earthquake in Haiti and the power of healing through story telling.   -->

"On January 12, 2010 the 7.0 magnitude earthquake which struck Haiti completely devastating Port-au-Prince and the surrounding villages left 316,000 people dead.  Of those who survived at least 250,000 were seriously wounded.   Thousands of children were orphaned.  How does a country, a people, an individual, a child, come to grips with such incomprehensible loss and find a path to journey forward?

-->
One way the mind begins to grasp such tragedy and begins to heal is through the power of story.  One’s story is repeated over and over again until it journeys from the conscious memory to the subconscious layers of the mind to the depth of the soul, finding rest and the silence needed to heal.  Here in the soul, to heal is not to forget, but to hold the memory safe and sacred.



Heal of the Hand is a story about the healing power of storytelling in the land and the people of Haiti.”  Author Kiki Latimer.

Please join the author and I for a presentation, book signing

Hawk Watercolor Painting

Hawk watercolor painting is 9 x 10 inches and is another for the Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.  
 "Finish each day and be done with it.    You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high
a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
