1/23 watercolor by John Gregg. Without Sioxsie the kitten paw prints. I had use the stippling brush to remove the prints.
Siouxsie snuck in to the studio. She tried to sneak on to the table to find out where the sound of the brush on paper is coming from. The top right thru the brushes was not expected. There is a reason for no kittens on the table.
“Landscape 1/23” watercolor by John Gregg. It’s been awhile since I moved my watercolors aside and started with copper patina. My Copper Bookmarks with patina are still going great. I’m producing some wonderful colors. I will be going watercolors with no intention of faming the work. Painting for me.
To the beach is the second watercolor painting in this series
I like this combination “TO THE BEACH” A open door will get you where you want to go. We are headed to the beach next month. Last time was the shut down for the pandemic the day we lift.
I haven’t added the water yet the rocks are in first. I have a round watercolor palette for sand stone.
Zion Narrows is a watercolor painting using an old photo from my library. The top half has four or five layers of watercolors. Tomorrow the bottom half.
Landscape 6/22 Watercolor painting 22” x 7” I set the color wheel to blue. The color palette was blue and yellow.

Landscape 5/22 is from several photo from trips to Canyon lands UT. My next trip to southern UT will be the first of June. With a base camp near Natural Bridges UT.
I will be painting what my muse wants and not for the next show. I like the lines in this landscape.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m in good health I took a break because my creative muse stopped. My muse was letting me know I was not fine. I removed Facebook and Twitter from my phone and pulled my work from from Las Vegas Artist Guild and City of World gallery’s. I covered the a large painting in my studio. Stopping “social media” I was no longer being pushed to be mad at something out of my control. Pulling my paintings let the pressure off my muse. It took months of to get back to where I was able to uncover my painting from March and put it away for later and put a new paper on a board.
So here is things moving forward. I will be feeding my muse with trips to beautiful places every month. I no longer look at social media. I will be posting my paintings on Facebook, Tumbler, and Instagram because it’s where people are.
If you want me to respond to you come over to http://www.JohnGregg.com. Go to my WordPress blog. All my work from the years is here.
Here how to get a hold of me
The last trip to Moab UT took 7 days with four camp sites in southern UT. Escalante, to Capital Reef, to Dead Horse, to Arches. Next trip is back to southern UT base camp near Natural Bridge nation park it will be at the first of 6/22 for several days.
The last place to show my work. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Its been about two months of not painting. So I’ve pulled all my work from everywhere. Last year was a rough year. I’m going to see what comes next.
