Watercolor work in progress...

Here's a few work in progress shots using the masking fluid. 

I use Sennelier watercolors
on the advice of a professor.  LOVE them!

After removing the masking.

Finished...or pretty much finished painting.  Below is a photo of the setup.  This table ends up in a lot of my still life paintings.  It was my grandmothers and I loving using it in paintings.

Painting studies...

I know I don't talk about my process enough, but will try to do more of that.  Painting studies really help me as an artist to decide if I want to do a larger painting.  I know the old masters did them...and most of their "studies" look like my masterpieces!  LOL!  However, they are so important for working out both design and color issues. 

This little study goes up for sale on ebay after 11/8/2012.  Just click on the link at the above right for the auction.

East coast....

I'm still blown away at the devastation on the east coast.  I've done several paintings of the water at Long Beach and Robert Moses Beach.  We have many photos of us at Cape May and the other Jersey shores.  My heart and prayers go out to everyone there.  I've actually got a family who has come to several of my painting classes that was impacted.  They're on their way up to help out some relatives.  They've no idea what they'll find.
