Did I Mention That I Love Watercolor

One of my passions and also very much a part of my life is creating art. I work in several mediums, but I really enjoy watercolor. I love the thought process of going from light to dark, the drawing of the image, the depth of light you can create and just the beauty that one can create with watercolor. The vibrant colors and the brightness of the two flowers I painted below, bring a smile to me every time I look at them.

Painting in watercolors is an exercise in patience and letting go. My best watercolors are those in which I allow the watercolors to create, I guide them, but they flow over the page and do their own thing. Glazing is that layering process in watercolor, that allows the light to shine off the white paper through the glazes and give the brightness that is the very essence of watercolor.

I enjoy nature and as a full time RVer, we see so many birds, these beauties are one of my favorite subjects to paint in watercolor.

I also enjoy the challenge of painting folks traveling homes, these are commissioned pieces that I do in watercolor to capture that love we have for our traveling homes.
