This watercolor painting shows a peaceful scene of an ocean sunset with pastel hues of blue and crimson, with a flock of seagulls gliding through the sky.
The wood frame is made from U.S. poplar wood, which I hand-stained with a 100% non-toxic ebony wood stain. It comes with a glass panel to protect the painting and a sawtooth hanger installed on the back.
This past weekend, as my Father’s Day gift, I took a half-day to myself and headed out to the U.S. Botanic Garden and National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. For parents with little kids, there is nothing like having time to yourself!
The U.S. Botanic Garden is an amazingly beautiful place to visit, if you ever get the chance. Ironically enough, this peaceful place of zen is located right next to the U.S. Capitol building!
Here is one of several flower paintings to come that are inspired by the dazzling flora on display there:
In my opinion, one of the prettiest drives in Northern Virginia is along the GW Parkway between Alexandria and Arlington. It runs right along the Potomac River, with views of Washington DC on the other side. There are great parks, as well as jogging and biking paths to get some exercise and recreation.
A few days ago we happened to be in Crystal City (on the southern end of Arlington), and on the mid-afternoon drive north along the GW Parkway, I snapped a photo of the Washington Monument on the other side of the river, which I turned into a watercolor painting.
With the spring season in full force, I’ve been enjoying making new paintings of flowers lately. So when my wife asked me to paint something to be raffled for an event with members of the local American Dance Therapy Association chapter, I thought I’d paint a flower that is dancing.

Size Options: Available in 12×18, 12×16, and 18×24, whether unframed or framed.
The last of the cherry blossoms are hanging around before turning into spring leaves! One of the joys of living in the Washington DC region is seeing this short burst of pink, rose and white colors every year.
While I painted this one a year ago, this artwork is now available as a fine art print in sizes 8×10, 12×16, 16×20, 18×24 and 24×36. It features three cherry blossoms in peak bloom, with hues of pink, rose, purple and white.
For those whose morning routines includes a freshly brewed cup of coffee, why not decorate your kitchen with artwork of your favorite drink?
Over at my Dave White Paintings Etsy shop, I’m currently in the process of adding many artworks that are available as fine art prints (coffee art, beach art, flower art, and more), whether framed or unframed, in a variety of sizes.
