Works on Paper – Watercolor with Colored Pencil

In the spring of 2020 we had a lockdown, I stayed home, and when things eased, I briefly returned to my oil painting studio. But I could not keep it past early fall, also for pandemic reasons. However, a painter must paint, and I had some old watercolor tubes and a corner of a desk and so that would have to do... I miss oil something terrible, but I am taking this time as a challenge to reacquaint myself with watercolor. I’ve dabbled with this medium on and off over the years, but never really dedicated it to a practice. Until this past year. The old watercolor tubes and such have since been replaced with much better paints, archival papers, and new brushes. A new oil painting studio will happen sometime later in 2021. And I will be working in both going forward.

• Choose which piece/s you would like to own, or give as a gift. Contact me via the email address on my contact page . First come, first serve, in order of emails received. If you have a second or third choice, let me know that too, in case your first choice sells before I have a chance to update the pages.
• Send me your mailing address for the artwork.
• I will then send you my Paypal email address (it is different from the one I use on my contact page). If you're not into Paypal, there are other methods. We'll figure it out.
• Please plan to add $8.00 per order for priority mailing costs and packaging materials for domestic orders. I can fit a few watercolors into each envelope.
Contact me for large orders, for express mail, or for international mailing.

Trees and Forests

As I have written on the Home page and for the oil painting Landscape Stories section, trees have been a serious subject matter for me for quite awhile. There were metaphorical trees painted while living in PA (see the archives), and before that, I did a short series of Tree of Life paintings while living in New Mexico.

Other New Watercolors

There is much to explore, and so other things get the watercolor treatment as well, such as still-lifes, smoke landscapes, abstracts, and more.

Earlier Watercolor Works

I took part in the #the100dayproject between April and July 2020, while being away from my painting studio during the early days of the pandemic. I decided to reacquaint myself with watercolors and various pencils at home, i.e. #randomworksonpaper.
