Wedding painting at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh

Katie and Richie. Watercolor. 12×16. Alla Prima. I did this watercolor painting  on the spot at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh. It is a beautiful church and it was a beautiful wedding. I decided to  use watercolor since it allows me to work quickly and I like  the spontaneous look of the finished painting. This was a surprise for the bride. I was working with Tracy Adams of Adams & Events. I arrived before the ceremony and decided to paint from the balcony. There are quite a few challenges with doing a live event painting. But, that’s what gets me out there painting.

Watercolor painting for Safe Haven for Cats: “Waiting”

 “Waiting”. 8×10. Watercolor. Available for purchase via Safe Haven for Cats live auction. This is the painting I just did for the auction. I used my friend Courtney Banko’s beautiful image as a reference. Earlier I had done two more paintings from her images. Those were for the SPCA auction on Oct 4. I like the cat in the painting but what got me interested was also the texture of those wooden boards. I had a good time doing this painting. Here is the link to live auction info.:
