Chattahoochee Canoers

This full sheet (22 x 30") watercolor on gessoed paper resulted from a photo of Irene and Pam Lopez canoeing with Daniel in the middle on the Chattahoochee. We (Cathy Smith, Alex and I) were in the canoe following - behind - on the side - etc. ( we were beginners) and I took a picture and painted this wonderful painting. It was evening in the beginning of summer and the Chattahoochee is a green river anyways but so beautiful at evening and so relaxing. A guided tour by the Roswell CNC. well worth the tour.

45 Safari Pines

Wonderful sketch of 45 across the street from my own 37 Safari Pines in Vero Beach. Sketched one early morning with a cup of coffee out in my driveway. I really loved the idea of living in Mom and Dad's place. very relaxing.

Winter Wonderland

How appropriate for this day to start with winter even though
we now live in GA. This was painted from memory. Actually
practicing my building skill before thinking of snow. Snow although
very cold makes me feel warm and cozy because of all the associations
with home and firelight.
