My blog will hopefully allow me to share my love of watercolor...the ups and downs of an artist's life and creative processes I go through in following my passion for painting. Hope you enjoy my journey.
It's been so long since I've been able to post on my blog that I've almost forgotten how. When Blogger changed some things, it changed my settings and being the total non-techie I am, my dear son had to get me another browser set up so I can post again. This is just the latest one I've finished so I'll be posting "backwards" I guess. My need to paint reds got the best of me and this little silver tray was speaking to me so I put together this little setup. Couldn't decide what to use for the background, so I just make it a "generic" green compliment to the reds of the cherries. I love to paint cherries. And I'm making a promise to post weekly now that I can get back on...looking forward to seeing y'all again...
Having been an artist all of my life...I remember seeing Santa place an art easel under the tree at my grandmothers house at age four...I am a watercolorist and pen&ink artist. Self taught, I was successfully on the art circuits doing large festivals and other venues for almost 25 years until I tired of traveling. While on the circuits, I met many wonderful artists and grew to love most media out there, but now concentrate strictly on watercolor. I am a member of several professional organizations around the country and enjoy entering exhibitions and benefiting from numerous watercolor workshops given by visiting artists as often as possible. My main passion seems to be painting glass and crystal and large focus florals. Out of the main stream of the work-a-day world now, I am able to devote full time to my painting and art interests.
I am fortunate enough to be able to live and work on our farm outside of Tyler, Texas where we enjoy all the pleasures of small farm life...cats, dogs, birds, chickens, flowers and a wonderful vegetable garden. These are the good things of life.
