Life Drawing

This is a watercolor I did of the two models that were at the first Dr. Sketchy, North Jersey event. This was back in January. I paint to slow for a 20 minute pose but a great time was had by all.

October Morning

Here is a picture of a neighbor walking her daughter to school. They just got a new puppy. As you can see he thinks he is walking them. Yes, I do live in a town in which people walk down the middle of the street and it is relatively safe. In fact we do not have sidewalks.

Well, here goes I just recently join this very active and helpful group. Looking through some of the shops of the members.

I was struck by Visual Punctuation's shop, from her warm welcoming remarks to her beautiful beaded cuffs, what a great place to shop. My favorite was a bracelet made with brown, black, grays, white and metallic beads, it is elegant.

Adrift too

He had been adrift for a long time, and now he had come a shore.


Adrift before dawn, the fisherman was only certain of catching a beautiful summer day.


My late entry to last weeks word.

Dwarves at Snow Whites Birthday Party

It was time to hit open the pinata, but no one could find Sleepy. Where could he be? "Oh, well," said Doc, "you snooze you lose" as began to take the first swing.

Crossing the Extension Bridge

This is a watercolor of my oldest son, Mike at summer camp crossing an extension bridge. I wanted to get the group to work as one unit but to keep their individuality.
