Jacksonville watercolor - wooden Indian.

My latest watercolor:

It's an old statue - wooden Indian, in the Western town of Jacksonville, Oregon. This town is used a lot for old western movies, so this probably has been photographed or filmed many hundreds of times.

R.I.P. Thomas Randall Crider

I guess this is the place also for me to share personal news. Randy Crider, my son Dustin's father, and ex-husband, died Sunday 6th January after a brief illness.


Goodbye 2007, hello 2008!

So glad to see the end of 2007, but 2008 isn't showing improvement. But I'm painting.
This 5x7" Watercolor painting of an appaloosa horse is from the Rogue Valley, Oregon. Title: Appaloosa Rogue. There is 8+ hours work in this.
I'm pleased with the results, but was tired and it became tedious near the end, and was scared of ruining it.

This is my most recent SFA (smallformat art) other than ACEOs (always 2.5x3.5").
