A watercolor painter for more than twenty-five years describes herself as someone attracted to depicting the beautiful and the mystical. (Move the scroll bar under the thumbnails to see many more paintings. Click on a thumbnail to see it larger.)
I am attracted by beauty in this world whether in a blossom, a tree, a sunrise, or even a face, and I am inspired to record that impression, often first revealed to me in the drama of a contrast of light and shadow. I am especially affected by misty distant shorelines and sunrises. I attempt to merge mood with atmosphere in my paintings, all with a minimum of strokes of color, which I hope to seamlessly blend on the paper, rather than on the palette. My desire is to remain true to the values and colors of nature, adjusting objects when needed, to make for the most pleasing compositions.
