Oranges remind me of Christmas

I love Christmas morning. I love finding an orange in my stocking. This painting is a multi media piece- celebrating citrus.

Uncle Lynn

My uncle was born on leap year, I painted this for him for his birthday. When I was a little girl, I thought his name was "Uncle Inn", he had a condo in San Diego and he would let us stay there. The beach always reminds me of him.
One time when we were there I wrote this haiku poem:

Where does the sky end?
Sky ends, the ocean begins,
Wind and waves. Two worlds.

Tulips at Dusk

I painted this a couple years ago, I went to Skagit Valley with my mom, my sister and my brother. We had such a good time. I loved getting to see so many tulips. One evening while we were there it started to get stormy and everyone got into their cars, I stayed out for a moment by myself and this is what it felt like to be standing there.

Zinnias in watercolor and ink

It is starting to get so cold.
Yesterday I had some time to paint,
so I painted about warmer days.
