Challenge Over

I finished the last drawings and paintings from the "Every Day in May Challenge". I haven't been able to upload them here. I apologize for clumping so many together.  I did not complete just a few of them. It has been a wonderful experience which I hope to repeat next year.


DAY 23. An interesting detail of a building.

DAY 24. Keys

Day 25. An apron, or something you wear during messy activities.

Day 27. Something furry or fuzzy.

Day 28. A yard ornament. 

Day 29. A faucet.

Day 30. A bird-feeder or bird house.

Day 31. Eggs.

Day 14. Something I use everyday.

Day 15. Something I could throw away.


If you braved it to the end, I can't thank you enough for your continued support!
Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. You have the eye for an interesting subject. I really enjoyed seeing your choices and how well you did them. You make the mundane beautiful.

  14. Wow! I can really see how a daily subject to paint would develop some valuable artistic 'muscles', in training the eye and mind to see potential paintings each day, and to bring them into being that very same day. I admire you for doing that! My favorites are the eggs and the faucet. They're all wonderful!

If Life Gives You Lemons

IF LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS watercolor on Fabriano Artistico paper 30 x 23 cm available
Now that it is summer, Amalfi lemons are in season at my local market. They are grown on the hills of the Campania  region, around Sorrento and Amalfi. They have a characteristic sweetness, a consequence of the volcanic soil, year-round warm temperatures, and perfect amounts of rain.

After rinsing the lemons, I set them on a kitchen towel to dry. As I went about, I would pause often to take in the soft delicate pastel colors. My purpose became to convey the soft light that comes in, with many variations of whites and neutrals to highlight the sunny yellow skin of the lemons.

It has also been helping me to do a warm up sketch before painting. I keep this sketch beside me to test colors before actually applying them.

When all of this is over, I have a whole book of baking recipes devoted to the fragrance of these lemons ... I need to get to work!

A Rose Aglow

A Rose Aglow watercolor sketch on paper 18 x 26 cm

The rose in this painting is situated in front of my daughter's high school. As I was walking past it, the sun was hitting it in a way that made it seem it was glowing with a beautiful mix of yellows and pinks.  I recently purchased some paints from the Ecoline liquid watercolor line. I enjoyed playing here with the pleasant intensity they possess. With this type of liquid ink there is the possibility of degradation of its properties over time, I will keep it for sketching purposes only.

This is an older painting I reworked. I felt I could have pushed it more, I feel better about the result now.
Thank you for stopping by!
