Dotti’s “Pants”

21″ x 28″ watercolor
From the Collection of
Rachael & Jon Votaw Ochoa

Time for another one of Mom’s paintings on the whimsical side. This painting is 21″ x 28″ which presents a commanding sight on view in a home, gallery or restaurant setting. Mom had it in several art shows in Davis over the years and she received a number of offers to buy it. Instead, she had it hanging at the end of her own hallway where she could enjoy looking at it every day. It now belongs to her Step-Granddaughter, Rachael Votaw Ochoa, the owner of the original pants!


Welcome to DaneArt! I’m Dana Richards. I live and paint watercolors in the countryside near Stevenson’s Bridge in Solano County, California. Views of Mount Diablo, walnut orchards and farm scenes constantly inspire me. The birds, insects and animals along nearby Putah Creek and in my backyard pond provide additional sources of inspiration. Over the past year, I have been experimenting with Plein Aire painting with a group of other enthusiasts. My work has been shown locally at the Davis Art Center, the Pence Gallery and in other locations around Sacramento and Woodland. I can be reached at
