I had a wonderful time! Dia was very helpful and supportive while creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. It was like sitting down with an old friend, but with watercolors. I was a little nervous since this was my first very public outing since COVID, but she's very sweet and put me at ease. I learned a lot about my technique and she provided informative feedback. I left feeling a lot better about my abilities.

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: In my living room
Once COVID hit, and we knew we weren't going anywhere, my family & I decided to get chickens. We picked out these 3 chicks from a local farm. We created a brooder in our living room, and my kids enjoyed creating a parkour/maze for them to run around in. During a moment of rest, I captured a photo of them & knew that I wanted to paint it one day. Additional info - watercolor on Arches, size 8x8

Title or Location: Boomers Beach, La Jolla California
My parents met on a beach in La Jolla as teens in the early 1940s they married, built their home there in 1958, when I was 4 years old. I grew up there, my children would visit their grandparents there. My parents are gone now. I own the house now and my parents great grandchildren come to visit me. So many beach memories now! Taking a walk through wild flowers blooming above the beach is still a delight to me at age 70. And being able to use watercolor to paint the beauty I grew up with is

Title or Location: Cabrillo National Monument
I recently began to study watercolor and oil painting so that I could create art from my landscape photos. I take classes at a neighborhood studio together with young children, teens and a few older people like myself and have learned more in a few months than I ever imagined. This photo was taken from the parking lot at Cabrillo Lighthouse and painted in watercolor a few month later. While I have hundreds of digital photo images, I have only a handful of paintings making them so much more preci

Title or Location: Onwards and upwards
As our planned hike up Mt Cook in New Zealand was impossible due to poor weather, my wife replaced Mt Cook with Roy?s Peak, near Wanaka a day later. So on a beautiful January morning we dragged? our teenage daughters up this steep mountain for 4 hours surrounded by stunning views. I wanted to mark their achievement and resilience as both found the climb a challenge.
