This is the final painting I did for Valri's WDE over the weekend. This was done in ink and watercolor. The original reference photo showed a picnic area with a group of tables, but I cropped it to show only one. I wish I could be sitting there right now!
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.
