Watercolor - Other/Misc.

My first encounter with art was seeing my Aunt June painting a seascape at the seaside cottage in New England where our extended family spent several summers. I remember thinking it was magic to see a painting come out of a blank canvas - I still think it's magic. After that I always wanted to create and now I'm fortunate enough to have that opportunity. I am a self-taught painter/photographer/digital artist currently living in Havana, Florida. My photography is primarily fine art, landscape and floral. My photographs and paintings have been exhibited in over a dozen juried shows across the country and have garnered numerous awards. My painting mediums include acrylics, collage, watercolors and pastels. My work ranges from the realistic to non-objective, with a current emphasis on abstract and semi-abstract painting. I am particularly interested in all things Irish and have a blog of my Irish travels and Irish inspired art.

Kickstarter Campaign
I've started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for my March 2014 show.

About the Kickstarter campaign. It started yesterday and it's 28 days and counting after today. A make or break thing. You can access the project from googling Kickstarter and picking explore projects. After that you can use "search" (at the top) and type in any of the following categories: Chris Nolan (be careful - there's another Chris Nolan!!), abstract paintings or Outside the Box. The last two choices will bring up several projects including mine. There is one PROBLEM: if you access the project using Internet Explorer the video will not play - all else is no problem. Apparently this may be because the video was done on a Mac and Explorer does not have a translator (or whatever you officially call it). SOLUTION: use Google Chrome and there is no problem with the video or anything else and the direct url is: Other browsers may work fine, I just don't know. The long url for Explorer is:

For my project you can pledge as little as you want ($1) or as much as you want ($150 or above) it's just that there won't be any additional rewards for pledging above $150. Everything would be greatly appreciated as the "make amount" is just for the project itself and not to replace any materials used in the making of the paintings - something that is desperately needed. I'd be very grateful if you'd share this project with anyone and everyone who might be interested - not just in funding but in reading about the project. So we're off to the races.
