Nature- water, trees, and animals, sometimes juxtaposed with manmade structures; are reoccurring subjects of my work. Watercolors bring a special glow to a painting. The fluidity of the paints and the development of shapes and colors are always intriguing to me. I have particularly enjoyed experimenting with painting on different surfaces. I vary paper textures, and also paint on canvas and boards specifically prepared to be used for watercolor. I find that each surface enhances slightly different characteristics of the pigments and thus brings out subtle variations in the nature and expression of the subject.
