Eleanor's Paintings Eleanor

I have been preoccupied with painting for the last twenty years; I like to play with colour, contemplate different compositions and share my experiences with other artists. Painting has led me to observe, record and better understand my life.

When possible I sketch and paint scenes, moments, people, and objects that I feel need to be remembered and interpreted.

Since my retirement in 2000 I have enjoyed both the peace and the beauty of the water and boats of the West Coast. Thus many of my works are seascapes done in watercolour. I also work in acrylics.

The picture on the right, "Painting at Pebble Beach" is by Bob Harmer.

“Futures in Pears”

Remember in the fall of 2013 how lovely and warm the weather for much longer than usual .The tomatoes and fruit were so sweet and so were the pears.

So I began this work with small watercolour sketches of pears
