FALL COLORS original watercolor painting is 9 x 9 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.    On a walk with my grandson I picked up some leaves.  The sun was coming into my window and created these nice sharp darks and lights.

A blank piece of paper is God's way 
of telling us how hard it is to be God.”

and it is with this alone,

that the painter should conform.

WHITE TULIP original watercolor painting (5 x 7").

What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires
their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession
with the idea that what has already been said is
still not enough.
Eugene Delacroix

Orange Flowers Original Watercolor Painting

Orange flowers original watercolor is 5 x 7 inches on Arches rough paper.   I don't know what kind of flowers these are, but loved their bright colors. I haven't posted here as I've had a few things I've worked on that I really wasn't crazy about that ended up in the circular file.     In the words of Erich Fromm:

I shall become a master in this art
only after a great deal of practice.
