I spend a lot of time at the beach during the summer. This was done in plein air and is a small 4 x 6 little painting. I have to be quick to capture people at the tables before they get up. This was done in pen & watercolors.
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.
