My latest paintings were done at our house in Quincy. I thought I had brought my paints along, but had not. I did have a set of sample colors from Auro Paints. Auro is a natural paint used, normally, to paint residential walls! These paints are from Germany and are made only from natural raw materials like linseed oil, and REAL mineral pigments. Because the pigments are so close to the earth, they are perfect for a landscape painting! The quality of these paintings are quite different…soothing even. You can see one at Riverfront Art Gallery and the other at Gallery One, both in downtown Petaluma.
This series of watercolor paintings were done at a Jeanne Carbonnetti workshop. They represent my interpretation of each of the seven chakras.
I am an evolving artist living in Petaluma, CA. My work can be seen at the Riverfront Art Gallery in Downtown Petaluma, and over the donor board at Petaluma Valley Hospital. I have been painting seriously with watercolors since 2001 and have currently added paintings using oils, acrylics and encaustic (wax) to my portfolio. The blog will be my attempt to share my new paintings with the wider world. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in learning more.
