Three studies of Venice

The first was a vision just at dusk of the gondolas and San Giorgio in the distance, actually the lights of the Lido are off to the left...Secondly, The laundry hangs from a building in the Arsenale and is reflected in the canal...sea weed clings to the wall and moves with the current...The last painting is of a foot bridge(they all are)crossing the Grand Canal with some wonderful boat going under it...more reflections in the water... all are watercolor and goauche 22x30"

Three Orchids Plants in Paradise

Walking around in the Botanical Garden ( an old sugar plantation)in St Croix one comes apon an old stone building filled with roof...just the tropical light filtering in...but then as you look up into the trees surounding this spot you see the orchids have climbed up into, and are growing in this natural environment...gorgeous oil on canvas 24x24"
