Not too long ago, the only landscapes I painted were rural scenes, but I now greatly enjoy painting urban landscapes as well.

One type of vacation we love is taking a river cruise in Europe. In 2008 we sailed on the Rhine, and one of our stops was Bonn, Germany. We found it a delightful city, and particularly enjoyed window shopping in the pedestrian areas. This painting is of one of those areas we visited.

A few years ago, I attended a watercolor workshop in Corpus Christie, Texas. There's a great harbor there, with many wharves, and tons of both recreational and working boats. A while ago I painted one of the shrimp boats at the dock, with the crew selling shrimp off the back of the boat. This new painting shows the recreational side of boating in Corpus Christie - a couple of sailboats tied up and waiting.

This project seems to make the weeks go by much faster. My thirteenth weekly watercolor painting is titled Backyard Barn. I enjoy painting rural Arkansas scenes; this one is based on a ramshackle shed I came across while driving the backroads near my home. I decided to add a few chickens to give it a little more life. This 7.5 " x 11" rural landscape will look good matted into either a 12" x 16" or 14" x 18" frame.

Today I'm posting my twelfth weekly watercolor painting, titled Mighty Mississippi. A few years ago, I took a trip on one of the Mississippi river boats that dock at Memphis. This tug pushing a large barge near the Hernando-DeSoto bridge intrigued me, and I snapped a few photos of it. The actual day was dreary and overcast, but I prefer strong sunlight and shadows because they add drama and interest to a painting. Memphis and Mississippi River fans will enjoy this 7.5" x 11" painting matted into a 12" x 16" or 14" x 18" frame.
