Watercolors

watercolor of pond at Field Farm

Meadow Grasses, Field Farm

Depictions of grasses have been a focus for several years.  However, depicting them in watercolor has been a new challenge for me.  This scene is of the pond at Field Farm–a wonderful mid-century modern guest house run by the Trustees of Reservation and situated on a high meadow in Williamstown. In the background, albeit not visible in the painting, is Mount Greylock.

watercolor of mossy bank in woods

Moss Garden

This mossy bank at Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, Massachusetts is always a source of visual and tactile delight.

 

watercolor of bee balm in vase

Bee Balm

One of my favorite flowers, bee balm has not only a whimsical structure and pungent fragrance, but in Earl Grey tea, a wonderful flavor.

watercolor of floral arrangement and sea shell

Still Life with Shell

One of the joys of having a studio space is the ability to collect and arrange favorite objects.  This sea shell is a very old friend and the vase a mid-century yard sale find.
