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!!

Puddle or Pothole?

watercolor
10" x 15"
landscape

In Indiana during the winter we end up with these potholes from the snow removal and the salt.  So when you see water standing you have to ask...is it a puddle or a pothole.
