Midnight at the Marina

watercolor
14" x 21"

Here is a painting of Chicago.  I will be doing a lot of Chicago scenes.  I went up to Chicago with my dear hubby on Sunday and I shot 574 photos.  Thank God we do not have to use film anymore and we can print the ones that we want at our own convenience in our own homes.  WE have come a long way baby!!

Purple Passion








watercolor 14" x 21"
floral

Here's a step by step of the painting that I painted today.
I spent 4 hours in the gardens cleaning out the leaves and 
getting them prepped for spring planting that I will begin
around May 15. Don't want to plant too early.

It's raining in this painting, but as I am looking out my window on this April 15th, there is a blanket of snow on the ground.  My poor tulips that are beginning to grow.  It was about 75 on Saturday.  Oh my.  Crazy weather.
