My mom’s copper sun hanging in my finish room. Trying a different route, waterproof inks building them up. Lexington Grey above… Brown inks added, De Atramentis Document Brown and something I mixed up in a waterbrush! Finally, watercolors added. And … Continue reading
Playing around with Robert Oster African Gold; ink-painting! In the end added lines… I LIKE lines! This is loosely based on my Mom’s big copper sun from Mexico. It now hangs in my finish room… Happy Sun! “Paint as you … Continue reading
Ink as watercolor, in this case Robert Oster African Gold. I think I can stretch this World Watercolor Month to include this ink painting on Hahnemühle Cold Pressed Post Cards. This squatty body is such a joy to paint! “Paint … Continue reading
I love this pelican. More than most objects of mom, this and the whale (which someone in her building STOLE while we were packing) will be the best of my mom and I. She loved the ocean, we moved there … Continue reading

Happy we are turning toward the light. Even on this rainy day, I know the light is growing . . . Looking across the river towards St. John’s, quick sketch while waiting. Drawn in an Stillman & Birn Alpha journal … Continue reading
I don’t think he wants Solstice! He wants to shine brightly year around! Mexicali suns are now on tote bags! (And of course, in cards and prints.) Happy Solstice (and some shameless marketing!) I agree to Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial … Continue reading
Most of my research for these two figures originally came through Marija Gimbutas (link to wiki.) I was introduced to her through the University of California, Los Angeles. She wrote two wonderful books I’ve used as references when painting my goddesses and gods, … Continue reading
