This is a collage of some of my small postcard-size watercolors, painted in 2014 and 2015. These were all views from my south facing windows. I was able to get two images from most of the paintings. I did this last winter and it was in my show in Juneau in July.
Though this is old, finally, I'm back posting on this blog, such as it is or has been. When I'm painting regularly, putting things here and on my other blog seem to keep me going.

The background is black gouache. I painted it twice. The first background was a bluish grey, but turned out very splotchy, which almost brought me to tears.

I've been so busy with my other blog, I forget that this one is here. I do keep working in the studio on oil painting, though very slowly. After years of watercolor painting, I guess I go overboard with the ease of changing things with oils.
This is from a photo I took in Sitka Alaska, but I changed rocks and islands, so I want say where exactly it is.

|oil painting 14x11 inches|
My husband and I have been going to Florida this time of year for the last few years, but this year we decided to stay home. And I'm so glad we did. It has been beautiful with lots of sunny days and lovely snow.
This is one of several paintings I've worked on in the last couple of months, from a photo taken on a nearby path. The berm is from a drainage ditch that was dug years ago.

|Juneau Winter 14x10 inches watercolor painting|
I painted most of this several years ago. I had intended to put a car on the road, but couldn't draw one without a photo from the overpass where I'd take the photos that I used. I finally finished it as is. The house on the left is the Alaska governor's mansion.
Below are two other paintings of Juneau that I did about the same time which are available as note cards. They may be purchased from Taku Graphics or from me by email at $3.00 each.
