Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Photo vs. Watercolor

Here are some of the photos from Green Hill Park from the Art for the Earth Plein Air paint out. I looked at the photos, trying to capture what I could from the natural settings onto the watercolor paper. I have to say, that after several hours...days, I was pleased.

The watercolors...

Typically, I do not use such vibrant color. I need to experiment more with color and watercolor techniques. The whole process is 'backwards' from doing monotypes. It will take some getting used to, that's for sure.
