C is for “Captured! That Crazy Penguin!”

"Captured! That Crazy Penguin!" watercolor on aquabord, 5 x 7" Funny thing is, by the look on his face, I think he is clueless as to the fact that he is trapped in that jar... he is quite mad, you see... Quite the silly grin on his face, you can almost imagine what he is ...

B is for “Batman and Aquaman, Hangin’ Out.”

"Batman and Aquaman, Hangin' Out." watercolor on Aquabord, 8 x 10" So, there actually IS a before picture where Batman and Aquaman were trapped inside the ball jar and Batman escaped by pushing the lid off and crawled out, leaving Aquaman (rather ticked off) still stuck inside the jar.

“Avelyn”

Avelyn Watercolor on Aquabord 8 x 10" This was probably one of my favorites that I did this past holiday season. A gift for a friend, Avelyn is his daughter. A gorgeous girl, perfect model for my aquabord and watercolor paints! Children are one of my favorite subjects to paint. I love the innocence in ...
