Drawings in progress. I like to envision buildings that interest me as they might have looked way back. This is my "Restoration" of the Royal Theatre and Dr. C.P. Marsh's office in Petersburg TN as envisioned back in the day. I had to guess at what the entrance looked like as it's gone. I looked at some old pics of other entrances. Elevation drawing and perspective. Maybe an old photo will appear someday. I can always redraw it!

Another in my Primm barn series. Many times my high school days in Brentwood Tennessee, I drove by this barn when the moon was out. This is a summer night with the full moon light and fireflies flickering.

An abandoned farm scene in the Fall. Having fun with different palette approaches and moods. I saw a double barn like this years ago and built the scene around it. (watercolor 8x10)

April showers bring May flowers I hear. Windy and stormy weekends here in Middle Tennessee in April. These daisies were in a field near my home. I picked a few for Diane and painted this watercolor/gouache from my previous pencil sketch.

These are watercolors on card stock. I use them like water based markers.

Some wet in wet watercolor based on memories cruising around the local countryside on some early spring days after a rain storm. French ultramarine being grainy, tends to pool up in the textured watercolor paper. I used the spray mister and let the water do it's work with the watercolors.
