Italy Part 2

Hello again, I finished a painting for someone special that I can't post yet until they get it :P Anyway....I was lucky enough to be asked to attend a workshop last Monday, I attended a " How to paint Fall scenes" with Susie Short. I learned allot, it was a blast, I love watercolor! These 3 sketches are from my trip to Italy. I did these in Walnut Ink, David, The Pantheon and The Prisoner. I would like to give a shout out to my Little Dr. Bro... HAPPY 30th Birthday bro, I love you.

Some of my Plein Air work

With the great response I've been getting with the "Salsa Series" I've haven't been working on much else. Once I get 20 done I will post them all, and they are on sale, $60 each unframed and $80 framed. I have at least 5 sold so please don't wait, or I can be commissioned to paint your own "Fresh Salsa Series".
I did these a few months ago, the first one is, one of the trees I have here near my house, I love the white trunk with the contrast of the green leaves. The last two are of Deception Pass, on a nice and sunny day, looking out from the beach.

Daniel Smith Paint outs

Well....what a week, I really didn't have time to paint for myself this week untill lastnight. But I did paint at work. As some of you know I have a part-time job at Daniel Smith in Bellevue. The best part of the job is that they keep me busy painting, like "DS Triads" and different painting surfaces like this one on Ampersand Clayboard. I call this one " oil in watercolor" enjoy!

Hello again,
I was finishing up a commission this weekend, when I decided I would go to the grocery store to make some dinner for me and the wife. And while in the produce isle I got a rush of inspiration. I always make salsa for us and I told myself why not paint the very colorful salsa ingredients! And from that came my new series of paintings called...."The Salsa Series". I'm going to paint 20 or more on 6"x6" clayboard. I really had fun painting these 2, this will keep me painting for months to come!

These paintings are for sale $60 each, so If you like one send me an email.
