June 2017 Landscape Challenge


I created this image using a photo from the June WetCanvas.com Landscape challenge.  I enjoyed this painting! It's fun to review my work to others. Not to compare but to observe different styles and ideas related to the same images. Here is a link to the Wet Canvas pages: June 2017 Landscape Challenge

Deltaville Virginia


A sleepy little town with a sleepy little dock in the sunset. I was at a friend's house last weekend before I flew back to Reno. This photo and painting are a snap shot of that evening. We had a wonderful evening. It was great seeing the waterway of the Rappahannock River mouth to the Atlantic Ocean. There weren't any clouds but this shot still came out okay I think.

Real Water Color


I gave the Peter Sheeler school of technology a try. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a five. But what can I expect for a first try?  Wrong tools, wrong colors, and I just didn't care! Crank it out and see what happens. Nancy said "Maybe watercolors are your style of painting?" I'm not so sure but maybe it is? Time will tell.  Here you go:
