8 x 10 done in plein air at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, NY. There is a historic house there and this view was right off the patio and down a hill. I spent a lot of time on this one and am very happy with the way it came out.
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.
