Lab watercolor


Been busy the past couple of weeks painting and finishing up commissions. Happy with how this lab commission turned out.




I managed to get out for a little hike today. I've never seen so many mushrooms at one time. Here are a few of my favorite shots. I especially liked these orange ones.




Also saw a lot of Jewelweed along the creeks and streams, another pretty orange. It is my favorite wildflower.

Dog Portrait Commission

This is a detail from a commission I painted over the weekend. A cute pup named Diego. Pretty happy with how this one turned out.


Below is the painting in it's first stages of watercolor.


Fossils and Dinosaurs

This Labor Day I took a trip to the Bay and looked for fossils and shark teeth. The highlights were a 1" Mako tooth (large tooth in bottom center) and a similar sized Sand Tiger. Not a terrible trip compared to my others from this summer.


On a similar topic I had fun making this collection of Dinosaur items on Etsy last night. The last few years I have become increasingly interested in the things I was interested in as a kid, dinosaurs being included.
