Original Watercolors

Catskill Pond Lilies

Over the last three decades of his life, the great impressionist artist Claude Monet painted some 250 stunning images of water lilies from his garden in northern France. Monet was a genius with oil paints, and I am a humble watercolorist. Yet I’ve dreamed for years of capturing a bit of his lily magic. Alas, my many attempts at painting Catskill water lilies end in crumpled throwaways. (Depicting the curled leaves is tricky!) Finally, I found an obliging subject, at a pond filled with lilies and Koi fish not far from Delhi, New York. Merci, Monsieur Monet. Framed original 16.5″ W x 10.5″ H $426

This painting is another in my series of nature scenes that struck my fancy along the steep dead-end road where I walk near my home outside Delhi, New York. I have been drawn in again and again by the narrow stream that tumbles down, down, down before splashing into the Little Delaware River, destined ultimately for the Cannonsville Reservoir, which helps supply New York City’s drinking water. I’m captivated by the twists and turns in this little stream as it carves its way between rocks. Original Watercolor 23.75″ Wide x 19.25″ High  $840

Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens

Painting titled of "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens"

My friend captured several images of these chickens and allowed me to combine them into this painting. I drove by this farm for months and never spotted the chickens in the window. Original Watercolor 22.75 wide x 15″ high  $1,200 framed, print $145

Victorian Turrets

This stunning house and garden begged to be painted. It is one of several regal, century-old mansions on Main Street in Delhi, New York. I love how the Hollyhocks mimic the building’s spiked turret. I had a little fun with the painting, too. Can you spot anything unusual in one of the upper windows?
