Kalmar Nyckel(Tall Ship of Delaware) by Debra Tritt Kreiger

11"x15" watercolor on 140lb Arches paper

This is a scene I knew I was going to paint as soon as I took a few reference photos. This is the stern of the ship.

"Mother Robin" by Debra Tritt Kreiger

Sold

Mother Robin has found her forever home thanks to Lyn at Art and Soul Gallery in Lemoyne. This robin was a young bird who I observed in my backyard. She was inexperienced in the art of making a nest but along side her mate she persisted and they overcame. The females heads are not as dark as the males as well as their breast are a little duller. She entertained me for days and I'm grateful!
