Mountain Mist

Watching the morning mist rise from the top of Mt. Thielsen was an experience not soon forgotten.

Ripening Blueberries

I've never really noticed all the colors to be found in blueberries as they ripen. The morning sun brought them out in a dramatic way here.

In the Reeds

Another two-fer, painted for both World Watercolor Month and Virtual Paintout (Cambodia). I was struck by the quiet in this scene, as the old boat seems to be slowly sinking into the still water of the rice paddy.

Lesser Bird of Paradise

This painting is to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, submitted for both Paint Colorful Birds for Fun and World Watercolor Month. (My thanks to photographer Darren Bellerby.)


It's fun to try to paint daily for the World Watercolor Month challenge, but I can see where it could get tiring. To give myself a break, I'm planning to do simple subject matter. Here's a pepper I sliced up in a bunch of pieces, looking for the most interesting view of it. I became totally enthralled with this slice of it.
