“Night Plants” (watercolor on paper; 7″ x 10″)
This took me so long to post! I have a new scanner, and not being very techy, I struggled to get it hooked up. Then, after learning to use the scanner, I had to figure out how to “find” the image on my computer, then figure out how to convert the image to a jpg. There’s got to be an easier way.
This little drawing is imaginary, of course–just shapes that emerged as I painted.
To my beautiful daughter Meg, who has blessed my life with love and happiness. Happy Birthday!
This is an older drawing from 2013. It’s an ink drawing with watercolor, a way of working that I still love to do.
I put pen to paper and draw, allowing whatever images to evolve. “Upside Down, Downside Up” is on paper, approximately 14″ x 20″.
“Horse Dancing in the Moonlight” (mixed media: watercolor on Yupo, collage, watercolor painting) 10″ x 10″
This little piece just returned from a N.A.W.A. exhibition in Florida. I added epoxy to protect the surface, and it will be in the silent auction at
NLAC’s Blend on the Bayou, May 7th.
“Louisiana Sky” (mixed media: collage, watercolor, clear epoxy)
The little horse painting was done several years ago. The collage pieces are from a large painting that didn’t work. I used attached the collage pieces to a cradled wooden panel (my newest interest) and sealed it with an epoxy. This little 8″ x 8″ piece will be available at NLAC’s Blend on the Bayou silent auction, May 7th.
Midnight Dance is a small (5″ x 8″) watercolor on paper. It began as a simple drawing of a horse, then washes were added and the dancers just seemed to appear. They celebrate life even through its darkest moments.
“As the River Flows” is too long for my scanner. The drawing is 15″ x 3″, an ink drawing on heavy paper with watercolor. It’s an image of a totem, something I’ve been exploring lately. This totem has a bird singing at the top, as the bells ring, and the river flows through it. It’s also part of a series of works titled River of Hope.
