Garden Shoes

This was done on a full sheet of watercolor paper, and is the painting that resulted from the the small thumbnail in the entry below.

Small Blooms

This hisbiscus is painted on the back of another painting. I never meant it for anything but a practice. My wife, however, had to have it because it matched the curtains in her sewing room.

These sunflowers in a pair of old shoes were sitting in the corner of a landing half-way up 28 zig-zaging stairs. My sister-n-law used them for pots so her husband would have to get a new pair of work boots. This was just a thumbnail that might turn into something else, but it lives with the owner of the stairs.

This painting is the result of finding some items around the house and setting it up for a still-life. The challenge was figuring out how to paint a basket. Lots of trial and error till I was able to break it down and then reconstuct in watercolors.
