This is another painting I did for the WDE from one of Helen's photos which I cropped. The black and white photo was of her mom & relatives long ago dressed in old style bathing costumes. I only did the legs. This is about 3 x 6 done in sepia.
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.
