This is 4 x 6 and was done at the arboretum the same day as the swan below. I was trying to include a lot of negative painting in the foliage for a project going on in WetCanvas. It isn't easy on such a small scale.
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.
