Two small watercolors, Mermaid Rising on the left and Fish Hug on the right, both about 10″ tall and on water color papers. I produce these small works when I find myself with idle moments away from my studio. It is art created the old fashioned way, with digits, not digital.
This painting is inside a Signed slipcased copy of Stephen King’s Duma Key and currently being auctioned at: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/forumdisplay.php?9-Calvin-s-Corner

Watercolor on rough absorbent stock,10″ x 9″. It was begun as a candid watercolor portrait, but the unknowing model left, so it became a memory painting from my imagination. I will be taking this to DragonCon this weekend.
This is the second remarque to have gone into the Haven Fund Charity Auction offered on ebay through the Dark Tower fan website. It generated a selling price of over $1500.00. Thanks particularly to Stephen King for agreeing to sign the books I remarqued for this auction.
