It could be stated that I will try to paint watercolor on almost anything.  We have three white birch trees in our back yard and early last summer one of them shared a piece of bark with me. I allowed it to dry between the pages of a heavy book and then peeled the outside bark from the thinner almost transparent inner bark.  I had some reference photos I took of an amazing tree in Mount Vernon Washington.

I’ve just completed this painting of a Heron. We have one hanging out at our water hole on the 2nd fairway now. They are amazing. I hope you like” Dinner Time.”








I painted this woodland painting using the concept of a different palette with the composition being in the woods. This painting contains a real bit of nature.

“Daddy Long Legs” is a painting of a Great Blue Heron. We have many here in Washington State. Their graceful flight despite their enormous wings and long legs make them a favorite of mine. This painting is from a reference photo taken by artist/photographer Chris Allsebrook.

“Rainier Morning” was painted from a beautiful sunrise photo I took while traveling Interstate 5 South from Seattle while on my way to California for a week. It was a good sign for the wonderful relaxing get away I was about to experience. Mt Rainier is probably the most commonly recognized mountain in the Cascade Mountain range.
