Blanche Anderson, Artist

"Noyo Harbor"

"I'd like to give you a brief background on Noyo Harbor for your interest.  It's the largest fishing port between San Francisco and Eureka, California and is located at historic Fort Bragg, in Northern California.  Noyo Harbor is a working port with a fleet of commercial fishing boats that harvest salmon, albacore, black cod, bottom fish, crab and urchins.  My husband and I have stayed at a bed & breakfast lodge just above this scenic harbor".

Maury Kettell, Artist


"It has been a long time since I've used a structure for a painting subject. That seems a bit strange because I started this watercolor journey painting old buildings. This old school house is from a photo I took while living in Alabama. Most weekends, my friend Mic Bryant and I would get our touring bikes out and cruise the back roads around Montgomery. We would always run across abandoned buildings, and whenever I wasn't too far behind, I would stop and take photos. I left Alabama in 1987, and even after painting all these years, I still have many subjects waiting for a painting."

Rich Stedman, Artist

"Greek Church"

"It is an watercolor painting from a photo by Christina Backus of Australia.  It is on Arches 140# hot press paper.  I was attracted to it for the deep blues of the water and the stark whites of the church".

"Last summer I discovered morning glories. It all began in my back yard with what is called a tri-lobed leaf. I went to the Internet to find out if it was a morning glory plant, or something I shouldn't touch. I found the most beautiful flowers and ended up with a great painting".

Millie Carree, Artist

"These hibiscus were so simple, yet flamboyant.  I had to capture them.  Hold them before they disappeared.  I hope you enjoy their fleeting beauty as much as I did.  Transparent watercolor is the medium.  Thanks Kathy for showing my work.  Millie"

"Fishing Off Normandy"©
Transparent Watercolor
Ray Annino, Artist
"Fishing Off Normandy"

"This picture was inspired by one of my favorite marine artists, Marin Marie (1901 - 1987). A passionate sailor, inventor, and painter, I first came across his work in the Musee de la Marine in Paris and was blown away by his realistic portrayal of the sea (especially how cold and mean it can get). This painting shows a small fishing boat in a healthy blow. I can't believe how much sail they have up and, how they ever set the spinnaker pole in such a breeze is beyond me".

Transparent Watercolor
Gordon Townsend
"Grandchildren At Bed Time"

"This is a small watercolor sketch I did of my wife and grandchildren.  The way the light was catching them inspired me and, as I had my watercolors out doing something else I quickly painted them.  As I was so pleased with it  I just had to have it framed, and it is now on my lounge room wall.  It amazes me how those spontaneous paintings always seem to work".
