I will continue to add paintings to this page.  I used Color Wheel Five to keep me on track while painting all of the following paintings.  When I need a neutral, I check back with the color wheel.

Crayon Candle from 1956

Ink and Watercolor Drawing, December 25, 2011 – Christmas Present for my mother back in 1956, made in Mrs. Morecraft’s First Grade Class.

Coffee Time, ink and watercolor

December 22, 2011 ….. Drawing after lunch at the Famished Frog in Morristown, NJ.  Color added in studio later that night.

Interior – Looking through and beyond the kitchen

December 11, 2011 – The goal was to use both full saturation and neutralized hues emphasizing light, middle and dark values patterns.

Misty Morning

December 5, 2011 – The morning landscape through my windows is often shrouded in fog.  The sun attempts to shine through the fog, creating an inspiring combination of mist and morning light.


December 4, 2011 … Imposing color on a gray morning in December.

Morning Landscape

December 4, 2011 … the sun peaks through the morning clouds … temporarily.
