I went upstate to visit with a few friends and had a bit of time before I was due to meet them. I stopped at a park to paint this view. It was at Downing Park in Yorktown Heights. This is in my journal, so it is about 3 1/2 x 4.
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.
