The Tomato


 "The Tomato"
Watercolor on Paper

 
5" x 7.5" ~ Image Size

Sold to a collector in Germany.

We had such a cool summer that the tomatos didn't ripen right away, and now that it's hot they're all ripening at once.  The "tomato guy" down the road said that this is about the last of them.....I guess summer is over.  :-(


This is the latest video on my forum, For the Love of Watercolor.  Getting that shiny, plump red that all Tomatos wish for...:-).   I've also included that gradated background for more practice on getting those rich, rich darks.  Another video will be coming shortly...also using red.

I am proud to say that my forum now represents artists from 10 countries.
  1. United States
  2. Netherlands
  3. Croatia
  4. United Kingdom
  5. Japan
  6. Canada
  7. Poland
  8. Italy
  9. Finland
  10. Australia
 How cool is that!  Artists from all over the world have joined.  It's just wonderful to be able to teach people worldwide and have a great time doing it.  :-)  Thank you to everyone who's joined us!

One last thing...I'm offering FREE SHIPPING* on all existing art on my Gallery Page through the holiday weekend.  I'll refund your shipping charges before shipping occurs. 

*Free Shipping is for the US and Canada only.

Challenge #1, The Magnolia

Wanted to share the first challenge from my forum, For the Love of Watercolor.
A lot of the artists on my forum are beginners, and I am so proud that they are doing so well.  Watercolor can be a tricky medium to master, but at this rate they are well on their way....♥

I will be working on some larger pieces for a competition coming up too.  Very busy here in the studio.  Stay tuned for updates.

To The Future

I have changed all the PayPal buttons (Add To Cart), to reflect the $10 off sale on all of the dvds I have left in stock.  I will let you know should any of them be gone after you purchase.  I will be consolidating all of my teaching efforts into one location shortly this summer, so, sadly I'll be ending the production and sale of my instructional dvds shortly.  For a look at the videos available click on the page links:

I know how many of you from around the world have enjoyed my dvds throughout the years, since we are moving into the future with my new forum "For the Love of Watercolor".  On the new forum, you can view my videos on any device, from any location.  It's a much better format.  Plus I've upgraded my filming equipment with excellent zoom capabilities to let you see "up close" each brush stroke.   And in HD!

I will be posting some of the videos from my dvds onto my forum  "For the Love of Watercolor" as time permits.

Brier swimming at Planet Canine



Brier and I want to continue to thank everyone for their support. I have attached a video of him swimming last week. You'll notice sometimes Bella comes along for moral support. She's a bit afraid of the pool though, hence, the life preserver. That's Gabrielle the physical therapist who helps him, does massage on him in the water and who has been a cheerleader in our war to keep this horrible disease at bay. As you can see he is a great swimmer, with rotation of all four legs. The swimming has been such a help in keeping his muscles in shape. He always needs to have his frisbee, his kong and his wubba with him when he's swimming. Thank you all for your continued support of my boy, Sweet Baby Brier.
