Watercolors make it fun to think about places I would like to visit.  This is from a photo by my son, Lew when he and Christine were in Amsterdam.

Wet Palette Flowers

Once in a while, I unload a bunch of colors to make way for new and fresh ones.  I always hope to make something pleasing from the "dump." This painting is from a while ago but still holds up.

Pikes Peak over the Garden of the Gods

The purple mountain majesty of Pikes Peak is always an interesting watercolor subject with its always changing light, shadow, and color.  The Garden of the Gods monoliths in the foreground are a plus in this view.  Other views, from the Woodland Park area are just as exciting.

Taos Street Scene

These visits to Taos make me feel that I am in a foreign country.  And, the town is only 3.5 hours from home.

Cottonwood Creek Beaver Dam

The beavers in this pond are really messing with the forest.  But I trust they know more than I about what the creek and banks need.  If I go  there next fall, what will I find?

Manitou Springs Stairway

The historic Manitou Springs Stairway which leads from Manitou Avenue to: NOWHERE! Perhaps it once led to a prominent building which is no longer there.  To get this view, I had to paint in the median of the avenue on a Sunday morning when traffic was very light.
