About my Images

I am watercolor artist. I have veered from traditional painting using brushes, paper and paint to using the computer. My tools now are digital brushes, software, and a digital tablet.

I am now able to paint more of what I see in my mind's eye and enjoy the instant gratification.
I hope you enjoy this site.

A good friend recently opened a dog boarding and daycare facility. It's almost like a spa. I might even check in myself with all the fun stuff they offer. I love it.

REM Sleep 2

This is the second in a series I'm calling REM Sleep. These are the kinds of images that drift in and out during my dream sleep. Sometimes, upon awakening, I have only a dim memory of them.

Mushroom Condo

This painting is almost like a fantasy image. I was on one of what I call a "photo walk" when I looked over on a bank and saw these mushrooms. It struck me that they looked like condos on the side of a hill. It had rained the night before and these just sprang up. Wow.

REM Sleep 1

Sometimes, just as I'm about to go into a deep sleep, images like this parade through my minds eye. I've tried to capture that here.

Moss Garden

Our neighbors have a beautiful cabin on the Cartecay River in Ellijay, GA. They have this really nice Moss Garden in a large bird bath in their back yard. This is a painting of part of the garden.

Good Neighbors

Someone once said the good fences make good neighbors. The fact that the fence is loosely bound implies that it's just the suggestion of a fence.

This painting has lots of warm earth tones with a friendly feel.

Hemlock Cone

We live in Ellijay, GA in the North Georgia mountains. North Georgia and South Carolina are currently experiencing an attack on Hemlocks by the Woolly Adelgid insect. It slowly depletes the tree of nutrients and the tree dies. There is a treatment, but very expensive for each tree. This will be a great loss to this area. This is a painting of a Hemlock cone on my property.
