Watercolor painting has offered the challenge of getting the drawing, color, value, texture, and perspective to come together to create a good painting. When all of this works, it is incredibly rewarding; and it makes me look forward to the next painting. Painting a variety of subjects keeps me interested – everything from the mountains, the beaches, and the hay barns of North Carolina to people working, dancing, and just doing what people do. The majesty of life makes the possibilities endless. For all of this, I am forever grateful.
