Charlie Chan Meets Georgia O'Keefe

Magazine clippings and scraps get pasted on sketchbook covers to put a face on all the black books and to provide inspiration. Is Charlie looking at Georgia's painting for possible murder clues?

Pink Cupcake

Painting a pink fluffy cupcake is more fun than actually eating one.

Conversation with Hattie

Watercolor doodle painted itself while on a long phone call which came as I set up paints, water and sketchbook. I call this one "Conversations with Hattie". It is nice to listen to a favorite relative with stories to share.

My neighbor and I were admiring my calla lily. She said it's a coronetta (?) in Spanish, blew an imaginary trumpet. I can see the palace guards blowing Calla Lily trumpets as Cinderella emerges from her pumpkin coach.

Alas, my lilies have not returned after gravel was put down.

Sea of Jellies

In a jellyfish state of mind, June 2009. Volunteering a the an ARt Miles event atthe aquarium has me thinking of fish creatures. Painted a full page of small jellyfish, cut into business cards embellished with beads and slipped into a clear cellophane envelope.

Hearts and Flowers

Spontaneous fun splashes inspired by pastry photo on Carol Gillot's parisbreakfast blog. Always a sweet luscious zero calorie treat. Small watercolors to go with my morning coffee. "Be Mine" instead of the usual Be Mine seemed to paint itself.
