I decided I needed to do at least one portrait for the week. This is my nephew's little boy from a photo I took at a family reunion a few years ago. Justin is more impish that I was able to make him look. This is about 5 x 5.
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.
