Catching Up

Obviously I an not a disciplined blogger, but hey how many things can one person be disciplined about?   I try to be a disciplined painter, a disciplined exerciser, and keep up with the office work that goes with being an artist, and oh yeah there is housework and all those new weeds that have sprung up in the garden with all the rain .  So where does blogging come in?  It falls in that category called “When I Have Time”!

I have plenty of time on my hands at the moment as I am on the first of three flights that will eventually take me to France where I plan to do some painting, some exploring and just soak up some French culture.

Here is a new painting you will find on my easel if you visit my studio at Elliott Fouts Gallery, 4749 J Street in Sacramento.

It is not  a good photo as light from the skylight was bouncing off the left side of the painting washing the color out.  The painting is 30” x 22” watercolor on Aquabord.

Here is another one I just completed and shipped to the Mendocino Art Center where it will hang as an example of what I will be teaching in my workshop at the center July 26 – 30. 

The title of the workshop is PAINTING LUMINOUS FLORAL WATERCOLORS ON AQUABORD and the painting is a 12” x 12” watercolor on Aquabord.  To learn more about the workshop go to

I am writing my posts off-line using Live Writer and then they will post to my blog on the web whenever I can find a WIFI connection, so you can read my “postcards” from this trip.  This post is being sent in Miami, the next one should come from France.

These are both beautiful. I'm becoming a big fan of the Aquabord. The colors are much more vibrant. I'm tired of painting a color, loving it and then seeing it dull down when it dries on paper. Do you work only on the Aquabord?
