Watercolor - Nature

I have painted since I was ten or eleven when a wonderful teacher introduced me to drawing and to pastel. But it was in finding watercolor that I fell in love and have been faithful to that medium ever since. I love its liquid harmonies and its brilliant or subtle color possibilities. In my work, I try to capture the fleeting beauty of my environment, both inside and outside. Nature is an everchanging and ever-fascinating route to understanding the world around us and to me watercolor is the best way of speaking of its wonders.

Christmas Thoughts
I'm loving the colors and the music and the smells and the energies of Christmas, but can't get excited about wrapping and cooking when I really want to be painting!

Already December!
It's already December, a favorite month because I love the cold, the Christmas music and lights, the happy atmosphere. But it signals the end of another year--already!!! Where does time go? When I'm painting, it disappears in an instant.

Things I Am Thankful For
First of all a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with great food and family and friends. And selling a painting the day before made me all the more grateful! Lots of inspiration in the Thanksgiving decorations--but its time to forget Fall leaves and think of winter themes--both favorite times of year.

Thanksgiving thoughts
As the holidays approach, I keep thinking about seasonal images and enjoying the inspiration for colors and subjects. At the moment, I am very thankful for having sold a painting yesterday. It was one of my favorites, nicely framed, and it is very nice to know that the buyer really loved it. My paintings are like children or pets--I love to know they are going to a good home!

Missing Paris
I just had messages from friends enjoying Paris, talking about the markets, the wonderful cool weather, the excitement of just being there. I am now looking for all my photos of Paris markets. If I can BE there, I can at least PAINT them!
