Sunrise on the Windmill

Sunrise on the Windmill – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper

Another in a series of windmill paintings. This one is an early morning sunrise on the farm. The windmill and the water holding tank were done in watercolor pencils. The rest using traditional watercolors. The sky came out very interesting and was fun


On the Farm

On the Farm – 9″ x 12″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper

This composition proved to be very interesting. A windmill the farm in the distance, another windmill, a natural spring, tire tracks cutting through the field, and a barbed wire fence in the foreground. More features than I’m used to, but I had to give this one a try. Challenging myself has proved to be very rewarding with this painting. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did in creating it.

Here is a favorite. This painting had several challenges associated with the tree in the background. and the bluring of the branches.

The following is a poem written for this painting by a dear friend. She writes:

Standing in the past,
Alongside a life of old,
Crumbling into rust and splinters.
Searching the horizon,
Waiting for something better.
