I've been really enjoying experimenting with watercolors as you can see and these crustaceans are fascinating with all the shapes and colors. It brings be back into the graphic side of art and right now is totally absorbing me. More to come!

Been doing a little experimenting with watercolors. I use these watercolor canvases to paint oils because they are so smooth, so I thought I would try doing a watercolor on one. I like the effect - a little harder to control, but it is a nice surface to work with.

White Koi

White Koi
8x10"
oil on canvas

This is my first painting of 2017.

I decided on Chumley because he is my most favorite subject to paint and this is his favorite thing to do - see the fish at the Arboretum. I ask him "do you want to go see the fish?" and he knows exactly what's coming. If I let him, he would stay all day and stare at the koi. When we leave he digs his feet in and pulls on the leash with his teeth to stay. I practically have to drag him out (really sad).

Any way, I'm hoping for the New Year you get to do all of your most favorite things.

Happy New Year Everybody!
