To The Lighthouse

well it was quite a day with the gulls crying and diving to keep us from their young hatchlings....but I persevered ,hung in there, kept painting..this was the first study since the light had been rebuilt and the color of the trim had been changed to white after 100 years of red? anyway I sat in the sand painting...and had a wonderful time of it....22x30" watercolor on 140lb hot pressed Arche paper

Flourishing Garden or Watering Can from Sing Sing(the prison,spelling?)

I painted this at a friend and students house one fine afternoon...could not resist the watering friend came out while I was painting and told me she had gotten it from the gardener at Sing Sing prison" They don;t make them like that any more." she said...I just loved the colors and the raised beds filled with growing things....
