Petunias and Aloe

I love to grow flowers.  This watercolor was especially fun to create and is of plants growing in pots on our back deck.

Nasturtiums on Victorian Porch


This painting developed from a photo that I snapped on a walk.  This Victorian stood empty for a long time. The nasturtiums took over the front porch creating a delightful subject for a painting. Since I painted this, the porch has been rebuilt, the nasturtiums have been removed, and the house has been put up for sale.

Plowed Fields Along Highway 20

I love when we drive past the plowed fields along Highway 20 heading west from Williams, California.
