Watercolor ARRRRT Contest

contest

The Pirate Carrds playing card deck created interest in a contest where a “pirate”  will be chosen to be painted in watercolor.  I will paint two watercolors,  one by popular vote the other chosen by myself from photos submitted to the website contest.  Got a favorite rendition of yourself you would like to see transformed into a painting? Go to < www.piratephotocontest.com>

Banyan Canyon Rodeo

Banyon Canyon Rodeo

Banyan Canyon Rodeo began as a small, 12″ x 9″, plein air painting on the grounds of the Ringling mansion in Sarasota,FL.  A squirrel scampered about and preened on a branch as I was painting. In the studio, the painting cried out for more interest and I remembered the squirrel’s visit and decided to imagine what might go in at this location when no one is looking.
