Hope Restored Church artwork

I have been commissioned to do a painting for our church foyer , and I can’t wait to see the reaction from the people today. I have had a few weeks to come up with an idea for the theme given to me and it finally came to me the other night, like 2 a.m. as to...

Keith Andry Watercolor

In the early 1970’s I made my first purchase of an original watercolor from Keith Andry of Louisiana. It was a painting that I saw on a Saturday at a watercolor workshop at a plantation and all I could think of on Sunday was that painting of the ducks. The next...

Watercolors at Pinecrest Conference Center Watercolors

Once a year I go to Pinecrest to get some rest and get away from it all. I stay in one of the condos while I’m on vacation and there was a wonderful kitchen counter to do some paintings on..  The last time I went there, the counter was gone and also the...

Hillcrest Farmers Market San Diego

The Hillcrest farmers’ market moved in closer to our church and so we had to change our service time to 9:30 a.m. because there is some parking available at this hour. So, on Sunday mornings I do art exhibits out in front of the church along with our coffee cart...

Spanish Village San Diego

In 1992 I was painting in Spanish Village, located at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA and loved the purple door on this particular gallery. In 2009 I was there again and painted the same view but the door was then painted orange! Then in 2013 I was visiting this same...

The San Diego Harbor

This is a picture from one of my photographs, taken (1987) before I ever had digital. I was painting on location down at the harbor in San Diego, a view of the city. Some of my artist friends were with me that day. One of them was a retired architect who said he...

The Blue Bird House

I have enjoyed doing paintings of this particular birdhouse at Summers Past Farm. Sometimes there are sunflowers growing around it, and one time it got shortened because the post got rotted and so it was replace. And now, just this winter, it was taken out of the...

Summers Past Farm Painting Space

One of the spaces at Summers Past Farm where I would set up my gear and do a painting is now gone. I’m glad that there are many other spaces to choose from because SPF is a big place to visit and enjoy. Sometimes I can’t make up my mind just where I want...
