Sunset, Alaska

IMG_9947

The dawning of spring was bitterly cold the year we visited Alaska. Of course, the Alaskan peoples were all overjoyed for the warmth of 0-20 degrees Fahrenheit! One of the most amazing things to me was the whiteness of the land. Being a Southern Californian (fifth generation, I’ll have you know) I’m acquainted, but not familiar with snow. The experience north was something I’d never seen before. The simplicity of the palate but rich texture of shade and light was dominant in the landscape.

Lemon to Brighten the Morning

Lemon

Fragments of the lemon slice glow in citrine hues. Swirls of pigment richly stain the rind, betraying the juicy tartness of each individual stroke of flesh.

This watercolor piece, from the Fractured Collection, explored the nature of separateness and wholeness. Each of the sixteen panels is five inches square. The piece was on display at The Hud in Ventura for the Summer Group Show.

This bright yellow guy is headed to live with a sweet baby boy. I’m sure they’ll have many play-and-dream-time adventures.

This dinosaur painting is part of my spring series of mini-watercolors. Each one is just $25 and I take requests. Look back on the blog for more mini-mers, monsters, dinos, and fairies. Happy dreams!
