Watercolor California Coast



It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on the blog.  Time goes by so swiftly; I'm glad I captured this scene  The original watercolor and full details can be found on Etsy .

The ocean and nature capture beautiful memories. The inspiration for this painting is the Southern California coastline. My work is a combination of what I see in nature and imagination.

Does Mood Influence Your Art?


People have asked me do you have to be “inspired” to paint and I usually say no but mood does influence the subject matter in front of me.   Painting or constructing art is a process of searching and researching in my mind and environment until I’m ready to say it with paint… 


This ACEO was a happy thought regarding a day at the Carnival but it’s been raining and cloudy the miniature painting is a little more moody and impressionistic...  So did the rain and my mood affect the painting?  Yes, I think so...
