Beets - demo

watercolor
still life

Last month I was teaching my students how to paint some veggies and this was one of the little demos that I did.  

I have been really busy with some shows that I have going on so I am behind on posting.  My reg. classes will be finishing up for this semester tomorrow.  I do have a Christmas card workshop this Friday.  The one I had this past Sunday went really well.  My students talked me into teaching a beginning drawing class for the month of January.  We usually take January off, but I thought if this is what they want....I am happy to teach them to draw.

I love the challenge of painting negative shapes in paintings like these.  You can get lost in the process.  enjoy!!

this is another area of Chicago that I like to visit and to paint.
But, soon we will be seeing snow so the city will have a new coat to wear.

the r-Crane at Night

watercolor
Industry
14" x 21"

this is a crane that changes railroad bridges and railroad ties.  It is really fascinating to see this...  I hope I did it justice.  this gentleman designed this equipment and he has put his heart and soul into this project (and money).  It is truly his passion.

I am thrilled to have met him, that he likes my work and has purchased a few that I have done of this R-Crane.  Yes, he did like this one when he saw it, and he is adding it to his collection.
