Two spring plein air paintings from Carlsbad

Batiquitos Lagoon Trail 12 x 16

Spring Meadow 12 x 16

The lingering effects of the rains made spring in South Carlsbad a colorful place. "Batiquitos Lagoon Trail" was painted just off Batiquitos Drive and "Spring Meadow" was painted along 101 with drivers in their cars cheering me on.

Sapphire Tower, star of the San Diego Botanical Garden

Sapphire Tower 20 x 16
Watercolor on Paper $2600
The San Diego Botanical garden is right near my new house and this spring the peruvian Sapphire Tower was the star of the garden. It was fun to paint this striking and bizarre flower!
We even bought a plant. It's tiny and may take 5 years to bloom.
