Beautiful Evening (2.5 x 3.5 inches; acrylics)
My latest painting was completed with Liquitex Acrylic Paints. I find the Liquitex brand to be one of the best acrylic paints on the market. I am enjoying the acrylic experience! This one is a personal favorite.
I have created a time-lapsed video of my latest watercolor painting! This watercolor was completed on July 3, 2017.
Sandy Beach (5 x 7 inches)
I painted this miniature on Saturday. I have also created a video of the painting process. You can view it here…
The completed painting…
Edge (5 x 7 inches; watercolor)
I like how Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch paint. They are both transparent watercolor artists and have put out several books and videos on how to paint with watercolor. Their paintings are very colorful, and the painting techniques they use create paintings that do not look overworked. The brushwork is loose and the paintings have a glow to them.
I am practicing some new techniques to loosen up my paintings a la Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch. I’m not real happy with the rocks, but it is practice after all! The watercolor techniques Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch use are simple, but timing is critical. I find myself forgetting certain steps of the process and that does affect the final outcome. Overall, I am pleased with the final results of this practice painting!
Abandoned Tower – A Model Railroad Memory (9 x 12 inches; watercolor)
I painted this watercolor for my friend, Bill Graham, who is a model railroader. This scene is from Bill’s former model railroad layout that was located in his basement a few years ago.
I am really pleased with how it turned out!
Morning’s Glory (2.5 x 3.5 inches; watercolor)
Painted this ACEO art card on Tuesday. An imaginary scene.
Waiting for Spring (2.5 x 3.5 inches; watercolor)
Completed this ACEO art card while enjoying a bagel at my favorite local restaurant. The trees and rocks were created using a couple of painting knives.
I gave this painting away to a worker at the restaurant. This person is always friendly and goes out of the way to say hello. The worker was very pleased with the painting, and I am very pleased with that!

What a blessing it has been over the last six weeks. Four wonderful people have purchased the paintings shown in the above photo.
Watercolor Artist Bob Fagan said the greatest compliment is to have someone purchase your art (paraphrased). He is absolutely correct!
A big “thank you” to all of you who have purchased my artwork. You will never know just how much it means to me.
