Northern California boat watercolor painting - "The Rusty Banshee".

I love all things ocean, sea, marine, having grown up just a few hundred yards from a wonderful beach, with ocean docks, wharves just a few miles further up the coast. This is from Crescent City, on the northern Californian coast. A small format artwork (SFA) in watercolor - 5x7".

The rust is what caught my eye most of all. And it's rendered pretty much like it was. I think and hope this rusty old Banshee is getting ready to go out on the waters again some day.

I have this painting up for auction at a low starting price on Daily Paintworks website - HERE. Please check out my other auctions on this site.

Another tiny 1:12 scale original painting.

I currently have about 21 of my art works up on eBay. Two are dollhouse miniatures (original watercolor art), one was just done recently. Two little girls playing at a picnic. "Two Little Girls In Blue" - 1:12 scale - 1.5" x 2" I love the mop of hair on the little blonde girl, it was just so messy and she just played her heart out. Fun to watch. I did more studies and hope to do larger paintings of similar soon.

Purple Anemones

Purple Anemones, painted in watercolors, of course.  I love watercolors with lots of crisp white background.  I call them "vignettes". Sometimes I feel like a background would just ruin the freshness of a watercolor - so I don't paint a background at all.

Landscape with Horses - Oregon - original watercolor painting.

My first ACEO in nearly a year. "Morning Meadows" original watercolor painting. 2.5"x3.5". Autumn landscape with horses in Southern Oregon.

"Beautiful southern Oregon. "Picture Perfect" is what I thought when I woke up to this scene one morning. It was, but knew right away that I wanted to paint it. It's taken a while, but here it is. It wasn't easy. I see my flaws in it, but still shows the "Picture Perfectness" of this wonderful pastoral scene."
