house on stilts

My nephew asked me if I had ever done any paintings of "houses on stilts" , and I remembered doing this sketch while I was in Thailand. This was quickly done from a moving vehicle (hence the moving vehicle lines) . People often ask what pens I like to use, and the answer is: the free ones at my bank. This is ink and watercolor on paper, 5 X 8.25. I love Moleskine sketchbooks for many reasons- one of them is that the paper is nice enough to paint on.

provo plein air festival

October 1-3 was the 2nd annual Provo Plein Air Festival, and since my daughter has just started to get much more mobile and independent- I was a little nervous to go out painting. I decided to paint the Provo Temple because there was a lot of space for her to play, while I was painting, a group of sister missionaries from the MTC happened by and took our picture. My husband made the frame for the painting, "Fall Session" oil on panel, 8 1/2 X 13
