I just had to create the Seahorse as a companion piece to my Chambered Nautilus. This sea creature is absolutely fabulous! I adore the fact that the male gives birth to the babies, shooting them out with violent contractions from his little pouch. Don't you just love that!

What do you think? Please share your ideas for another creature to add to this collection!

NEW TECHNOLOGY - Video for the Blog

Sorry to be away for so long! I'm continuing to paint, but also trying to learn how to create videos for this blog and my website. I'd love to feature watercolor tutorials and paintings in progress. Isn't it about time that I came into the modern age!

Here's my first attempt at an introduction to my paintings. Crude beginning, but I have to start somewhere! Just click on the arrow at the bottom left of the video.

Yes, you are right. I do have to replace this soon, filming when the sun is not in my eyes and my hair is styled better!

Suggestions? Please let me know if it "works" on your computer.
