"Joe Pena's Plumeria"

"Joe Pena's Plumeria" is a 29 x 21 watercolor painting from a photo taken by Joe of his plumeria. Plumeria are growing in the warmer tropical areas. With some luck we can grow them as a potted plant out side in the summer and indoors for the winter here in Wisconsin. They have the most intoxicating, addicting fragrance. If you have ever been to Hawaii, you know what I mean. Thank you Joe for permission to paint these.  ON HOLD

Whitewater Alley

"Whitewater Alley" is 15 x 21 watercolor painting of an alley in my town. I have had this photo for several years. I would return to it often, but felt I did not have the skill to paint it. This is in a looser style than I usually paint. Surprised myself that I could do this, let alone paint it in only an hour. I learned a lot from it and will tackle some more complicated scenes in the future.

Pep Talk

"Pep Talk" is a 7 x 11 watercolor painting of my grand daughters 6th grade basketball team. She is number 52.  GIFTED

Play Ball

"Play Ball" is an 11 x 15 watercolor painting. I have been inspired to work at painting more images of people. Progress is being made, but still a lot to learn.  DONATED
