Yesterday was a drizzling, gloomy day, but I wanted to paint outdoors. I did this 4 x 6 ink & watercolor from my car while it was parked across the street from this house. It was in an area of nice old houses that I will definitely go back to again.
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.
