Title or Location: Wild Carrots At Dusk
I named this watercolor "Wild Carrot At Dusk" (18"x14.25") I wanted to capture the sun setting on some Wild Carrots or Dacus Carota you probably call it Queen Anne's Lace. This painting is part of a series where I am working to feature everyday things in our environment to celebrate them and have the viewer look closer at their glory. Therefore I use beautiful colors and knockout textures to bring out the beauty in nature, hopefully making you look twice. The symbolism of this wild flower is san

Title or Location: "Reflection"
I decided during the ice and cold weather we had recently to set up a quiet place around my recliner with a blanket, my watercolor pads and easel to take some time to enjoy the week painting. I turned on youtube videos of aquatic ocean with relaxing meditation music.

Title or Location: Magnolia Diptych
Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee and now residing in Hernando, Mississippi magnolias have always been a piece of nature?s beauty I have admired. I began studying magnolia shapes on my walks with my daughter and painted several pieces in a study of the blooms. A local Memphis designer, Maggie Clarke, came across my works and commissioned me to paint these 26x36 watercolors. This diptych largest size I have done to date!

Title or Location: The photo which is referenced in this watercolor was taken at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay which made the cut for the 2024 Milky Way Photographer of the Year international competition.
I have always loved watching the milky way, its the brightest out at sea. I have never been able to capture it with a camera. I had this idea in my head about painting a red house on a lonely hill with the milky way above it showing how small we are compared to the universe. Then I came across this shot taken out at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay and it was like the universe had heard me and given me a reference photo. the watercolor looks nothing like the original photo but I love
