Pretty pink rose

Love painting roses. This one was so fun.

Susie's Pink Pearls

I've been painting pearls. I love this one. Thanks to Watercolor Instructor Susie Short, who help me to see how they shine. I call these "Susie's Pink pearls".

Rose up close

Who doesn't love roses. Nothing else to say.

Tiger eyes

OMG - is this awesome. My grandchildren all have Tiger mascots in their school, so they wanted grandma to paint them a tiger. I love the eyes, so much expression. They were all so excited when they saw him. Michael said "Good job grandma"

Christmas rose

At Christmas time I was working on so many different ideas for xmas cards. This white Christmas rose is beautiful, however it is not what I finally chose for cards. Maybe next year.

Oregon Coast

So much to say about this one. I love the fact that its much larger than I usually paint. I love the water, I love the rocks and sandy beach. I will do more of these. I think there is so much to learn!!

Key Lime Pie

Of course - when in Key West, there must be Key Lime Pie! Well, we tried the Key Lime Pie in many of the restaurants. I must say, I loved them all. So here's my interpretation of my favorite dessert.

Paradise

This sign hangs outside one of the shops on Duval Street in Key West. It says it all!

Flamingos, water and reflections

Flamingos, water and reflections. Another Why I love Florida photo, and another painting that I learned a lot from.

Key West rooster

Roosters are big in Key West. The roam the streets at will. Love them!! I photographed this guy and had to paint him. So fun to paint birds.

Hwy. 1 - End of the road, Key West

Lately I have been painting a lot of paintings from our Key West vacation. I absolutely love this place. This one is a painting of the most photographed road sign - end of the Road!!! More Key West paintings to come.

Tulips on twinrocker paper

Tulips are awesome to paint. Love them. Will do more. So many ideas, so little time.
I haven't posted for a while. I was unable to access my blog, don't know why. I have a new MAC! Love it. It is amazing, and now I can login to my blog again. So I have some work to post.
