A Walk Through Tuileries

Well reality set in this morning as I was out on my morning walk here in NYC. I was walking down Park Avenue and passed a black suburban motorcade with police escort and an ambulance following behind. In the back seats were armed guards looking out the opened windows looking at those of us on the sidewalk . It was sobering. For those of you who are unaware the UN is in session this week and the city is under high alert. We surely are living in tumultuous times.
I am so grateful my faith is in the Lord God who gives me His peace and joy. I hope this painting of Tuileries gives you a sense of joy and peace of a relaxing summer day. I had fun painting it.

This watercolor is 7 1/2" x 8 1/2" It is $100 plus $10 SH

Colorful French Wheels

Hi, Welcome back to my blog. I am so glad you are here as I will be sharing the paintings I did from my recent trip to France. This one is called Colorful French Wheels and I saw them everywhere. I am drawn to color, especially color that seems to pop out in the midst of a gray landscape like Manhattan where I spend most of my time. Well Paris was no different. Paris is a beautiful city and these Vespa's were everywhere and I was immediately drawn to them.
I hope as you go about your day you will be aware of all the color God has placed around you and I hope it makes you smile as it does me.

This watercolor is 61/2 x 10 " and is available for $150 plus $10 SH

Fly Fishing

As summer ends and school get back into session I find myself getting back into more of a routine. My bible study starts back next week and I am excited about that. I have also been working on a web site this summer. I am still trying to connect it to this blog and waiting for tech help with that but my artist friend Dreama told me to take it slow and I am heeding her advice. Slowly but surely it will all fall into place. Hopefully all the kinks will be out by sometime next week. After that I am planning on posting my watercolors from my trip to France that I took in May. That was a wonderful adventure.
The water on Bantam Lake here in Litchfield Connecticut is still overflowing it's banks from the recent hurricane but the good news is our boat is still afloat. I hope you enjoy looking at "Fly Fishing"

and that is brings you a sense of peace, quiet and balance as we all gear up for fall once again.
