A sunny day found me at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale yesterday. I love gazebos, even though I find them a nightmare to sketch with all those posts! This one had that lovely tree with the blossoms to set it off.
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.
