This watercolor painting is the second chapter of a series that I am calling "Ghost Story". This series of watercolors on paper have been inspired by a trip last year to Natchez, Mississippi.
In this work , I combined photos of an old building, called the " Mount Locust Stand" which is now part of the Natchez Trace highway National Park. As I walked around the old residence , I imagined the life and experiences of the woman who lived and managed this old "stand" .

Chapter 1- Swinging from past to present"
17 x 22 watercolor and fluid acrylics
While travelling through the Town of Natchez, MS I came upon one of the finest antebellum homes of this town. Known now as the Monmouth Inn.
In creating this work of art, my goal was to capture the essence of how our pasts interconnect with the present. I tasked my self to create a "story" that would capture the beautiful architecture, while telling a tale about long ago. I wondered , as I stood before this building if previous tenants continued to walk the grounds . Were they enjoying the landscape that was created when they were alive, as much as I was admiring the now towering trees planted in the past and still standing in my present.
Does the past swing into the present? I think it does... $1,400
"DOORWAYS TO ALTERNATE UNIVERSES"
New for 2023 is a painting that is part of my "universe" series begun in 2021.
This painting is 22 x 17 poured watercolor, fluid acrylics and paper collage.
I have always been intrigued by the stars and planets that I see in the sky. The beauty of our universe inspires me. Painting with my mind's eye, I have been creating interpretative visions of what the universe may be like. Join me and lets open a doorway , step through and see who is travelling and where we end up.

Every year for 5 years this beautiful orchid has sat in a bowl of water and given me these gorgeous pink blooms. I have painted it using acrylics. But this spring, I wanted to do something a little different. So, I decided to use only watercolors and I snapped a picture of the flower looking down on it. I liked the abstracted look of this photo and decided I should try creating a work from this image.
