    Hello, I am a new member. I started back painting when I retired in 2011. Many years ago I painted in oils, but the smells really gave my sinus a fit. I finally gave that and many years later I started playing around with photo manipulation and digital art. Over time that just made me miss the feel of...

  • Getting Trashed

    I've heard of painting for yourself, for school, for work, but painting for the trash can?! Artist and watercolor painting instructor Jean Haines explains why working this way isn't rubbish at all. Enjoy! The aim of being an artist is to create. But with this desire of creating wonderful paintings...

  • Think I Can Get Batman to Sit For a Portrait?

    Portrait painting is serious business. Truly, there is a lot at stake for the many professional portrait artists out there who paint dignitaries, presidents, and the like. But portraiture can also be incredibly fun! A show I saw a bit ago at Elisa Contemporary Art reinforced this for me. Their latest...

  • Ah, Vacation.....Time for More Painting!

    I put aside my oil painting work to take up a sketchbook and watercolors to capture the sights and sounds around me during my trip . If you are a painter, you know that sometimes the best thing to do is get away from it all...and do more painting. I was very blessed this summer to take a wonderful vacation...

  • Exploring the Lyrical

    ". . . everybody who has ever done creative work of any kind knows this moment. You make your plans in terms of what the mind can think of, and if you hold to those plans you're going to have a dry, dead piece of work. What you have to do is open out underneath into chaos, and then a new thing...

  • Painting Bridges, Alleys, and Avenues of My Favorite Cities

    I was born and raised in the suburbs, with rural farmland and city centers nearby so I have an unbiased appreciation for both. I'm attuned to the natural elements around me and I love to be outdoors, but I also get so energized by the sights and sounds of the cities I visit or live in. And sketching...

  • "Bury Brother"

    In this new painting, I'm trying to capture the bright New Mexico sun against my grandkids skin and clothes as they played at White Sands National Monument. It's transparent watercolor on a full sheet of 300 lb Arches rough. Some of the texture was created by applying acrylic molding paste prior...

  • "Fire in the Hole"

    One of the many benefits of living in Albuquerque are the hot air balloons. This watercolor shows the crew team inflating the envelope early one morning. My center of interest is the flame from the propane burner. I used 300 lb Arches rough. Matted the painting will fit a 28 x 22 inch frame.

  • "Different Tune"

    Another musician that we saw as we walked the New Orleans French Quarter last October. It seemed unusual to find a flute player on the street. This watercolor was done on 140 lb Arches stretched over a sheet of gator board. Matted and framed it will measure 28 x 22 inches.

  • "First Day of School"

    Pavina sent me a photo of her nephew on his first day of school. Have pity on his kindergarden teacher. The image is about 17 x 17 inches. I'm looking for a 22 x 22 inch frame. It's done in transparent watercolor on Arches 140 lb rough which I stretched over a piece of gator board. Of course...

  • "Duct Tape Tuba"

    A memory of the French Quarter in New Orleans - this watercolor was painted on 140 lb Arches stretched over gator board - the painting is about 21 x 17 - when framed it will be 28 x 22 - Mardi Gras beads were added to help it look more like New Orleans
