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:

World Map Watercolor Painting

Recently I’ve started a series of 25 world map watercolor paintings for a translation/interpretation company (UNO Translations) to give to their clients for the New Year. Each painting has a unique design – this one is full of roses!

Series of Watercolor Flower Paintings

A few months ago, I did some watercolor floral paintings on 18″ x 24″ watercolor paper for a neighbor of mine. These will be nice for them to look at as we get into the colder seasons and the flowers go away until next spring!

Each painting was custom-framed with Michigan-grown poplar wood frames that I stained with Bio-Shield 100% non-toxic wood stain:

Evening Gold – Beach Painting

“Evening Gold” is a watercolor painting of warm sunset colors against a cool evening sky, with palm trees, mountains in the background, the ocean, and gold-hued sand. It’s painted in more of an impressionistic style, to give a dreamy effect, as if you can drift off and be there in your mind!

Prints on Fine Art Paper are available for purchase here, in size 14″ x 21″ or 16″ x 24″, with various framing options (sample below).
