Spring Paintings

These are my latest paintings for Spring 2014. The painting below is of Putney, London. It is from a photo taken by a relative recently. The lighting and the color caught my eye so I quickly painted it. I like the light of the sky's influence reflected on the rest of the elements in the scene. I get a feeling of peace and anticipation in the fading light of dusk.

Below is a painting I did from my trip to Paris to gather subject matter for future paintings. If you are interested in buying one of these paintings or have a question please contact me through the blog.

Next is a painting I did of the Balboa Island Pavillion. It is located in Newport Bay California. 

I wanted to paint more of the bay so I painted it again with reflections on the water. This painting is now available as a print for $US80. It is printed on watercolor paper. It looks just like the original. The image size is 11" x 15". Contact me at

This painting was quickly painted on sketch book paper. I intend to paint again on Arches watercolor paper 140lb., cold press.

From My Sketchbook Again

Below are some of the watercolor sketches I have done these past few weeks. "If you want to be an artist do a drawing everyday" –Benny Bufano. The more you practice art, like a language, the more proficient you become. The street scene below is my latest sketch. I am planning doing it again on 140 lb. Arches Watercolor paper. If you want to learn a language open your mouth. If you want to paint watercolors, "get your brush wet." If you are interested in buying an original watercolor, print, or note cards of any of my art email me at:

Below is a quick sketch I did of students in one of my classes.
