One of my favorite things to paint and admire are cacti. Growing up, my dad raced motorcycles in the Mojave Desert. I am very familiar with the California desert surroundings as I spent many hours riding through the landscape. As young kids, my brother and I had a little motorcycle.

Beautiful painting. I love using pen and watercolor together. Some of my favorite art are pieces I created using the two. I find myself practicing many different techniques and styles. I wonder if I should settle on a style and finetune my technique in that form. It is all just so much fun! Thank you for sharing your beautiful art.

I grew up vacationing in Morro Bay and still love to spend time off there. I went alone which offered me some time to practice urban or Plein Air Painting. It was terrific fun. In my journal, I…[Read more]
Hi Deborah, Thank you for your positive comments. I am trying to do as many January prompts as I can (and want) to do. I am a teacher and go back to school on Monday. I know my time spent painting will slow down as I get back into the swing of things. I am grateful for the extended amounts of time off I get.
