3 more new little watercolors.

Yesterday, and today I've just completed 3 more miniature dollhouse (1:12 scale) paintings. All original watercolors from local scenes. 2" x 1 1/2" approximately. I did 2 others that I didn't post here, last week, also.

I've listed them on eBay - you'll find them HERE

 This one is "Wash Day" a very old colonial ranch house a few miles from me. 

 I also have very good news for collectors. A frame maker I have dealt with for over 10 years, who specializes in miniature frames is working with me to offer frames for these new works of mine. Anyone who buys from me will be given this contact information. When I was collecting miniatures, trying to frame them was very difficult until I found someone. 

Anyway - take a look at my 3 newest. 
"Wash Day" 
"The Secluded Garden" 
"On Hidden Pond" Anyone in the Rogue Valley happen to know where they these locations are? The valley has such a treasure trove of wonderful, picturesque places.

5x7" "The Pirate Rogue" watercolor

I fell in love with Renaissance Fairs in 1998 when I went to my first in Atlanta, Georgia. It also wet my appetite for other events.

This is from 2011. "The Pirate Rogue" - watercolor painting from Rogue Renaissance Faire.
5x7" The costume is wonderful in its detail - a great mix of colors and textures. But how costumes like this get worn on such hot days, I will never know.

The Tea Merchants Celtic Band sketches

"The Tea Merchants" band were playing tonight at Central 
Market, in Austin, Texas. The top one is after the sun went 
down and there wasn't enough light to add color. Little 
children were dancing all around to their lively tunes. 
A lovely way to spend a summer evening.

Lavender Field

This is my impression of a French lavender field on a cool, misty morning.  I've been meaning to try painting a lavender landscape for a long time. This is my first one, and it was so much fun I think I'll try again! Please visit my watercolor blog if you have time, and Thank You for looking!

Floral Watercolor Painting

I've been experimenting with Yupo watercolor paper. It's so different, and so slippery. I'm discovering I can't erase on Yupo, or it leaves areas that resists paint. I'm not sure whether I love it or hate it yet! If you'd like to see more, please visit my blog at

"Fall Inn" watercolor ACEO.

Just listed on eBay - "Fall Inn" watercolor ACEO 2.5x3.5"

I love the blue with the orange, and the wonderful build-up of fall leaves. This is an historic hotel (Inn) in Prospect, Oregon, all decked out in its season's colors. The hotel is over 120 year old and even had presidents and other notable people stay there.

It's one of my favorite photo-taking areas in Southern Oregon.
