Rain Cycle - Watercolor of Bicycling in the Rain

Rain Cycle     7 1/4" x 20"



 This watercolor painting of a bicyclist in the rain reminds me of life, sometimes.  The rain can stop us from getting where we want to go or we can peddle through it and let it nourish us and become an adventure.

Horseback Riding in the Sicilian Countryside II - Watercolor


  Close up   

This is the last of a series of watercolor paintings of sisters, all done from photos of a trip to Sicily several years ago. They’ve grown up quite a bit by now and they are beautiful young ladies!
  
 I painted the background landscape pale in comparison to the horse and rider to emphasize the portrait itself.
