Ancient history!

These commissioned watercolors  were painted about 30 years ago, when I had a sweet little wooden studio in Mendocino, CA.  A charming town, the opening credits for 'Murder, She Wrote' show its setting on the coast north of San Francisco.
Watercolor and bronze powders on embossed Fabriano 300 lb. cold press papers, if I recall correctly.

That's the young St. Francis above and Noah in his ark. The dove is painted with a background of Windsor blue. The silver is Speedball water-based block printing ink; I can smell it now!
Thanks Norman and Linda for sharing these.
