What's New?

Hi folks:


This is my new watercolor and colored pencil painting inspired by Paul Green's cabin in the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill.

 Paul Green was a well known playwright, who did most of his writing in a little cabin. The cabin was moved to the Mountain Habitat Garden in 1991, nestled in a display of Southern Shield Ferns.

I like the combination of watercolor and colored pencil because it provides both depth and luminosity.





 



Early in 2013, we adopted Stanley from Triangle Sheltie Rescue. He is a wonderful boy, and has stolen our hearts and those of everyone that he meets in our community.

Stanley is a great model, and I have painted him several times. In this watercolor and colored piece, called Shetland Reverie, I picture him recalling the ancestral home in the Shetland Islands of this wonderful breed.
