A couple weeks ago the small plum tree we planted last year burst into bloom. It was so exhilarating and uplifting to see these beautiful blooms after a long, dreary winter, I just had to paint them. Hoping I did them justice….

Gotcha!

Gouache Watercolor
Original: $500
Reproductions Available 

One summer my youngest son and his two oldest boys were here visiting for a week. What fun we had! Among the new experiences for my grandsons was the fun of crabbing – both off the end of the pier and with my two crab pots.

When one, lone crab finally wandered into the pot, the boys were so excited 🙂 Here’s a gouache watercolor commemorating that moment.

Pelican

When we were visiting my in-laws in Florida, we were standing on a dock watching fishermen clean their catch. The pelicans were very interested in any scraps that might be left unattended. This one bird landed just in front of the dock, turned to look at me as if to say, “So, what’s happening?”
