Water Tank Acrylic 16 x 20 Stretched Canvas

Summer has finally arrived here in Sonoma County. I thought the warm days would never come. I've not been painting a great deal this month. Too much going on with family stuff.
But I intend to do more after we get back from our visit with Kathleen (my eldest daughter) on June 24 to 28. She lives in Oregon near Jacksonville and her son Evan and his wife Chelsie will be there from North Carolina, where Evan is stationed. They have a new baby which we haven't seen yet, a boy Oden. Kathleen's other two children will be there also, so it will be a fun visit for all of us. Evan will be going to Afganistan for his second tour of duty and we will be able to see him before he goes. How I pray that he'll return to us safe and sound and that this terrible war will soon be over.

Puck Watercolor, 11 x 15 on paper
This is a piece I did for my grand nephew Matt and his lovely bride Elisa.
I know that I love my dog a lot and I'm sure that they love theirs also.
I wanted to give them something very personal that they would always
have and remember their old aunt Mary for years to come.
I wish them all the happiness in the world on their journey together.

Cherries in a Yellow Bowl
Watercolor 11 x 14
This one was done last November. I love the light coming in from behind and throwing shadows on the table.
