Red Horn

What a fascinating sailing trip I had this past weekend sailing our boat from north of the Tappan Zee, down the Hudson River to Sandy Hook. Some scenes just waiting to become watercolors!

Retirement Means More Painting!

I have recently retired from my full time job! It was a good run, however I am excited to be moving on to the next chapter in my life. I will finally have a more unhurried approach to my painting- no longer having to fit it into a weekend chore. I even joined the Jacksonville Watercolor Society, which I have been wanting to do since we moved here, and I hope to find even more art opportunities as things progress.
I even had zero guilt today when a painting I had started turned out to be not at all how I had envisioned it and I could very calmly put it aside, knowing I now have plenty of time to start over or simply move on to something new.
My last post until this one has been a solid year. I must have done some art in all that time! I will look through the archives and see what else I can post.
The painting above is a recent one from our travels a few years ago- a seatmate on our train traveling from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, Thailand.

Mr Pelican!

A lot of stuff has happened since my last post, most notably that we bought a house! So mostly my painting has been confined to walls and other home related projects, like designing our new renovated kitchen. I did make time for several commissions as well as a new, larger work to serve as the anchor piece for our living room, and here he is, Mr. Pelican! He's 24 x 36" framed.
