This was painted in a tiny, 3 x 5 sketchbook while waiting for our train to Venice. We had been delayed arriving Rome, so we missed our train. I had been people watching for hours, and decided to capture some of it on paper.
I have always participated in the visual arts including watercolors, drawing and sketching, pen and ink, and photography. Since retiring from teaching I have devoted much of my time to watercolors, sometimes combining them with pen and ink or collage.
Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel, and sketch and paint wherever I go. Painting, especially on location, captures the spirit and life of the subject. I hope to continue doing that for a long time to come.
