California Tiles

I love watercolors with tobacco ink…

These are mostly my new Da Vinci watercolors sparkling,
mimicking the lovely California tile glazes…
 I love working with California painted furniture.
California tiles take me home, to open houses and arched doorways
and colorful places for bare feet to walk upon.
This time of year the beaches are quiet, the tourists gone,
the sunsets spectacular, and Catalina Island can usually be
seen as if it is close enough to touch!

Working on them is inspiring me to paint tiles…
and tile-like mandalas!
