This is a 15 x 30 in watercolor done by combining several of my photos from Italy. The buildings came from one photo, and the wall and foreground trees from another. I think it captures the "Spirit of Tuscany."
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.
