Almost every watercolor was completed in my studio in Carpinteria, California.
Due to some physical limitations I most often work from photographs I have taken, and some that are brought to me by others. I just donít do very well painting on location.
Almost all the work represented here was completed in the last eighteen years. My serious study of watercolor only began when I retired from Sunkist Growers in 1995. Happily most items were well received, and so only a few original paintings remain available.
All together I have selected some 90 items from my most recent work to offer here for your pleasure. Recently we published a coffee table book titles 'The Delights of Carpinteria' featuring my works that depict scenes in and around Carpinteria. Happily, this is selling in several local stores.
To satisfy the questions from my grandchildren I also wrote an autobiography titled 'Lucky Limey'. This is available via Amazon.com
A more complete explanation of the autobiography is available on my website www.raycolesart.com.
