Giclées available. Please inquire.

I am very fond of clotheslines, and my latest watercolor is a representation of my life
and the beloveds in it. It was painted completely from my imagination, which is rare for me.

The beaches in northern California are so different from the Jersey Shore, but lovely in their own way -- if not conducive to swimming because the water's so frigid! I tried to recreate the way the ocean rolls up the shore in these very textured mixed media pieces. There's very little actual paint on them, but I used genuine California sand and beach glass and various acrylic gel mediums.
