FALL BOUQUET original watercolor painting is 12 x 13 inches on Arches 140 lb rough paper. I've submitted this to the Rhode Island Watercolor Society for their "Four Seasons" show.
“Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.”
FLORAL STILL LIFE original watercolor is 9 x12 inches on Arches 140 lb rough paper.
"The Chrysanthemum, the Flower of Happiness, was so
revered that in Japan
only the nobles could grow it. It has been grown for over 2,000 years all
throughout in the Far East. It has come to mean love and truthfulness.
We may see it carved on the throne of the Emperor of Japan
and on many Chinese artifacts."

CONEFLOWERS original watercolor is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound rough paper.
With their hands raised
like sacred dancers,
moving to silent music
the dance of the breath of God
the petal of the coneflowers
each like the arms of the dancers
swaying in unison
in time to the rhythm
the dance of creation
in the bright morning sun.
