Rose Hip

Here is a shot of my drawing table. I am doing a watercolor study of a rose hip. I am using a helping hand holder for soldering to hold the rose hip. I have the helping hand because I actually do solder things from time to time but I think I will use it more for drawing small things. It even has a magnifying lens so I can draw super tiny things.

Nice Stem

I just made this painting available as a reproduction. It is called Nice Stem, and it is from 2005. I like to grow a vegetable garden every year and that always includes some interesting heirloom tomato varieties. It can be very frustrating to grow tomatoes in the Pacific NW but maybe someday I will figure it out.
