LILY PADS ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

LILY PADS original watercolor painting is 12 by 18 inches on Fabriano rough paper.  I entered this into the Rhode Island Watercolor Society "All About Color" show.   After I spent hours going through my photos I picked a reference from when I was in Arcadia park when I captured the little frog and water lily and pads and then after I spent hours drawing it out, realized it was all green..... so  I poured on the colors and prayed a little.


Colors, like features, follow the changes
of the emotions.
Pablo Picasso

YELLOW WARBLER ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

YELLOW WARBLER original watercolor painting (7.5 X 8.5) on Arches 140 lb paper. 

YELLOW WARBLER by Katherine Lee Bates

...Listening to those blithe notes, I slipped once more
From lyric dawn through dreamland's open door,
And there was God, Eternal Life that sings,
Eternal joy, brooding all mortal things,
A nest of stars, beneath untroubled wings.
