Seagulls Sunset Painting – Wood Frame

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.

Flowers in a Pot Watercolor Painting

Inspired by the United States Botanic Garden

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:

The Washington Monument from Arlington, VA

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.

Funny Food Art

Artistic Food for Thought

As an Artist that enjoys cooking and a eating a variety of foods, I can’t help but to sometimes see certain foods and think of creative ideas for paintings.

For example…

Have you ever noticed how bell peppers kind of resemble the shape of teeth?

Smile of Peppers

Or how the crown of a pineapple could also be some cartoon-looking dude’s hair? Or how a banana could be a smile? Or how apples could be the eyes on said pineapple dude?

Or how limes could hang out at a coconut pool with a banana slide and a lemon for a sun?

I don’t know how these ideas come to me…maybe it’s having super imaginative little tots around me all the time!

A Flower Watercolor for Dancers

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.

Here it is! Prints are available here.

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.
