Watercolors

   Most of my work in watercolor was in painting Florida birds. I very much enjoyed the time I spent in a canoe gathering reference for my paintings. Eventually, I began painting the rivers and coast where I spent my time. I should preface this by saying that the great thing about art is the diversity. The paintings that catch my eye are pieces that are well composed, have appealing color, strong light, etc. I am not particularly interested in the medium they are painted in. The thrill for me is in the seeing, not working with paint. I leave it to others to explore the inherent character and look of different media. I worked with watercolors for ten years before I began to consider myself a watercolorist. It was then I switched to egg tempera. I think of myself simply as a painter.
