I completed this painting last week, and the title seemed obvious to me. Two figures connect  and travel earthy caverns. Here is The Passage, 2017, 7 1/8″ x 10 1/4″, watercolor, ink and pastel. It is available here

It really is all in the details. I have a lot of fun panning out and zooming in as I work. I always feel there are many little paintings within the one.

Here are some other drawn works finished this month.

Summer has been full of  family adventures and productive creativity. When I’m in my home studio during the day (night painting is oh-so-much-quieter), they run in and out after swimming or skateboarding. It’s a fairly frenetic balancing act. But it works. My youngest son has recently been apt to make an artistic suggestion or two. He sees a puzzled look on my face as I stand before a painting, and asks:  “Are you stuck? Do you need some help?” He is so charming (he really is), how do I say no? Surprisingly, more than once, his input is intuitively spot on. Just the other morning, he told me I might like to paint a creature in the corner of one of my WIP’s. He’s helping me write the story….

Here are some bits from my latest projects.
