While in Oceanside, CA in early September with my friends, I did plein air daily. We were right on the ocean, with the most beautiful views. This is one of several small watercolor paintings on watercolor paper that I did while there.

En Plein Air in Oceanside, CA (watercolor on paper)
(oil on panel) en plein air Big Bend National Park, TX
I’m enjoying plein air painting and often paint in different areas with the Outdoor Painters’ Society. It’s a huge challenge for me to paint realistically.
This is an old drawing from 2013. I’m not sure where it is, but I used to draw a lot of whimsical, cartoon-like images (still do ; ).
Not Necessarily Pretty is a colored pencil drawing on paper. It’s probably a work-in-progress, and I’m not sure where it’s headed. The theme or subject is saving wild horses.
Plein air painting (oil on panel) at Linden Plantation, Mississippi. This little painting got me into the Plein Air on the Santa Cruz competition in Tubac, Arizona. I’m looking forward to plein air painting daily for a week and meeting many other artists!
Save the Bees; Respect Life is a small (1/4 sheet watercolor paper) watercolor painting and ink drawing. This little piece was juried into NAWA’s exhibition “Art of the Story,” New York.
