Autumn Paintings


Small watercolor 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" in an off-white mat



Graphite and watercolor sketches ... Small prelim sketches... the process that leads or moves me to a completed painting.

Painting the mountains in the Autumn is always a nice experience.....  Two more small watercolors ..

  Another day in my studio...    Just trying to get ready to go to work and paint ....  December has been a busy month for me....
