Pen / Ink / Watercolor / 6 x 6 inches

Now for something really different. I haven't done any of these in quite a while. here's what I had to say about them on my website:

I started drawing in ink and adding watercolor accents a couple of years ago as a relief from the intensity of my other work. I found it such a delightful and refreshing way of working that I started calling the results “Confections”. They were like dessert to me; a sweet treat, a reward. I also started using this technique for preliminary studies for commissions and other large paintings. Apparently collectors get as much of a kick out of them as I do, as I can barely keep up with the demand. They make great beginning collector pieces, gifts, and small, personal parts of existing collections.

Since I started the daily series of smaller paintings, I've felt less of a need to do these. But every so often I do get the urge. And, since I don't do any preliminary drawing on the paintings, I get kind of lonesome for drawing. So, I've decided to add an occasional confection to the mix. Let me know if you would like to see them become a regular feature here.

I sort of snuck up on myself with this, so I haven't had much time to think about how to fit them in. To make up for the sudden way this has come up, I've decided to suspend the regular auction for a day. Instead, I'm offering this first one to the first person in with a $100 bid.

That's right, the first hundred takes it. Don't wait!

If you would like to own today's painting, just send your bid in an email to:, or call Thea at 505 982-4561
