Art From Photographs

"Peggy's Cove" -  20 X 16

"Fresh Lobster" - 11 X 14

I go everywhere with a camera. I can find something to photograph in every day life. So imagine what I do when on vacation to a new and exciting place. On a trip to Halifax a couple of years ago, I took lots of photos. Two of my favorites have resulted in a couple of watercolors. Loving color, it was only natural that I would paint the red boat in Peggy's Cove. This sea side village was a painter and photographer's paradise. A second watercolor also resulted.  As a tropical artist, I  am always drawn to the sea. These two watercolors are available for purchase. Prints and cards are available through RedBubble.


  1. Good morning Rosie, Isn't having a camera something. Now you can come home from vacation and render the images.

  2. Rosie,
    Must have camera, because reference photos are fun!!! =)

  3. Yes! It's not just having the camera, but being able to see the images immediately. No need to develop the film.

    Thank you both for your comments. It makes me feel that I am having an art conversation and not just talking to myself:0)
