I’m delighted to have an 8-page article in the June/July 2015 issue of “International Artist” magazine! (The first page of the article is show to the left, the magazine cover below.)
My demonstration painting, “Grapes in Silver,” was also chosen to head the Table of Contents on page 2.
The article is in two sections. On pages 108-111, I discuss my techniques for achieving vivid colors using watercolor paints. Six of my paintings are shown, and I comment on technique or inspiration for each one.
On pages 112-115, I take you through a step-by-step demonstration of a new painting, “Grapes in Silver”. This also includes a list of the paint colors and other materials I used.
Copies are available through the magazine’s web site, at news stands and in book stores. Our local Books-A-Million carries IA.

In addition to having a painting in this wonderful annual show, for the first time I’ll be sending several unframed prints for sale. Most are signed, limited edition giclees. I will also have a few boxed cards available.
Spring, glorious spring — I recently painted these small paintings to celebrate the return of warm weather and sunshine. The little sushi leaf plate, and the blue rice bowl, made perfect complements to the fresh fruit.
