Kingston Creek (Winterwonderland 3)

This is the fourth painting I have for Saint Davids Show. It is mixed media of watercolor and Pastel
I painted this before Christmas last year to put on my filing cabinet over my desk at work.
It is on 300lb. watercolor paper so I couldnot get it to stay on without a heavier tape so I brought it home . A few weeks ago I decided to fram it.
It is now cropped so the bush at the left is gone and the bottom half of the bush on the right is also covered with mat.
It measures 21X12 and is framed 31x22.
I do not really like winter but I love winter paintings.

The Bouquet

This is the floral painting I am putting in Saint David's Show.
I have cropped it some and it is now 7.5X7.5 framed 13.5X13.3
I really like the square format.
If you have been following my blog you have seen this as a work in process using three colors.
If not you can look back in my blog to find it.

Positano Shop front

This is another painting from my Mediterranean Moments.
I combined two photos here to include the beautiful hanging peppers and the enormous lemons with this awesome ceramic vase that was outside a shop front in Positanio which is a beautiful town on the Amalfi coast just a short distance from where I took the photo for the Amalfi Coast painting.
This town was wonderful !!! It was full of beauty. Both a joy to the eyes but also to the tongue. We sampled and bought some of their lemmoncello. A refreshing liquor served chilled in the daity little glasses.
This is one of my favorite paintingsbut I am now releasing it to the universe and truely hoping it will bring someone else joy.

I took this photo while on a tour bus.. There are three buses ahead of us that are in the painting.
The roads are very narrow and when we met a bus comming in the other direction a couple of times their side mirrors almost touch. Beautiful countryside!!!!!!
