Mukilteo Lighthouse

I just finished this for a project on my online watercolor group WCW. This month's theme was anything having to do with the ocean. The reference photo was given to me from C.B.Clements who graciously gave me permission to use it.  In hindsite, I wished I had changed the composition to show more of the side of the building to give it more perspective.

Philippi Bridge

This is a commision piece I just finished. This bridge is in Philippi WV hence the name. The original burned down and was  then rebuilt. This is painted after the new bridge. I am pleased how it turned out.

I thought I would share my latest painting. I am not happy with how this one came out, although I do like the clouds. I think it is important to share even the not so great paintings so that everyone can see that we all have our bad days with our art. We need to realize that these mistakes help su to  grow as artists, and we need to just keep on painting and dont get discouraaged.
