Sullivans Island in Pink

On a recent trip to Washington I visited the National Gallery and filled up with vibrant original art.  There is nothing like  viewing art as the artist left it for the world to see. Paul Klee was my big take away and came home with his book influenced from his travels to Tunisia.  This painting is much bigger than my usual plein air canvas.  20x28   It was so fun to paint with my plein air friends of many years.  sold

for now I want to keep .... 
Im not sure why I have grown fond of this painting, but I think it is because the water color settled into its pure properties.    I basically play with water color, I don't follow rules ( like I do in oils)  and it allows me the freedom to relax into what ever happens.

Going to High Point North Carolina for a Show.

These figures were inspired by the one of Picasso's pottery pieces( blue and white theme)  from the amazing show at the MOMA.

Tribal Movement


16x20 ink on water color paper 

Had a great time with a good friend and art enthusiast at my studio today.   These were her final selections , I love seeing what she chose for her art collection.  We both liked how this series captured a tribal feeling with less detail and more movement.   The top one especially lets the viewer fill in the body shapes.
