My latest painting (my fifth one now).....this time a watercolor using several photos from a visit to the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, CA.

The final size is 14 1/4" x 27 3/4" on 400lb Arches Cold Press.  I'm still trying to determine how many hours these watercolors take me (the last one took me 120 hours and was less complex) and so I set a timer for every one of my work sessions.  83.5 hours spent on this over a span of only two weeks!  I'm getting faster!  This was accomplished while teaching a full course load just to prove to my students....IT CAN BE DONE!



and detail of my favorite area:


ETA - I received word on Monday that this painting won an award in a regional show last weekend.  I sure wish I could have been there for the opening, but the weather was AWFUL!

Your work is amazing!  So life-like it almost seems like it's a photo.
