Sifting Sand

10" x 10", Watercolor. I'm was a 10 year breast cancer survivor. A few weeks ago they found a small tumor in my opposite breast. One week ago today I had a bilateral masectomy. I am blessed they found it early, and I feel great just a week post-surgery. Life is grand, and its time to start painting again.

The Fountain of the Naiads, Rome

Watercolor, 11" x 14". Am I permitted to say I like this alot? So nice when a painting comes out the way you envisoned it before you first touched the brush to the paper.

16" x 20", Watercolor. My first watercolor of this size. One of my goals is to not be afraid to work a little larger. This was an outdoor cafe near the apartment we rented in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome.

Watercolor, 8" x 10". I sold this piece at the Avon Boardwalk art show. Thank you! They weren't sure they saw this exact door in Italy, but were sure they saw many like it. I'm glad it brought back happy memories for them.

Positano, Campania, Italy

11" x 14", Watercolor. Truly the most breathtaking place I have ever seen. A tough painting for me. I was at the point of fussing too much with it, and finally just decided it was finished. It is what it is.

Market Day- Rome

I was shocked to see the date of my last post...then I chuckle, because who really besides me ever looks at this stuff?? Anyway, I have an excuse..most of the month of May was spent getting ready for, going on, and then recovering from a 17 day vacation to Italy. My belated honeymoon actually. It was, of course, glorious. So, now with over 3000 photos to go through, the paintings begin. I didn't know which to do first! So much beauty! So I started with this...a rainy market day in one of Rome's piazzas..I forget which one. I called it the Piazza of the Scary Statue.

Watercolor, 11" x 14". A group of friends I saw posing for a picture at the Philadelphia Flower Show. My husband pointed out that I've done several paintings now of women in groups of four. I'm not sure why I find that so fascinating.

Savannahs Finest

11" x 14", Watercolor. Funny that the first image of hundreds of scenic photos taken on our trip to Savannah that I decide to paint would be the carriage horses. I loved the contrast of their coats. And the way they moved their heads as one. Wish I knew their names!

Something Different

With my painting "Old Homestead" at the Art Alliance show in Red Bank on Monmouth St.
The members show has two themes: Home Sweet Home and Angels and Monsters, so it invited a lot of varied interesting works of art. The show runs until early March, so come check it out. I have two more paintings there too: Ocean Grove Tents and Garden Angel.

Summer Hollyhocks

8" x 10", watercolor. I've had a few paintings I just can't seem to get downloaded in the right position..they are turned. Don't know why that quirk is happening. So, I know I haven't posted this one..from a photo my sister sent me. She knows I'm a sucker for a good flower photo, especially if there are interesting shadows involved.

The Bride

Watercolor, 8" x 10". I mentioned I was working on portraits. Inspired by Karin Jurick's end of the year portrait challenge no doubt. This painting of myself on my wedding day is my latest attempt. Its hard painting yourself because Im not sure anyone has a firm grasp on how they really look, and Im not 100% satisfied with it. But again, it was time to stop fiddling with it for now.
