Watercolors

I am no Picasso, DaVinici, Cezanne or Van Gogh (even though there's a tribute to him including in the art you see), but I enjoy painting. I was taught in a variety of painting mediums, oil, acrylics and watercolors. As a kid, I painting primarily in oils. I loved it, loved how I could layer colors on top of one another and create a texture on canvas. I would get lost for hours in my world of paint. As a teen, I developed asthma and the smell of the turpentine was a bit much for me to handle, and I revisited watercolors. I liked that I could paint loosely or as heavy as I want. I had to relearn how to include white(s) and other textures to create the world that I enjoyed when I used oils. Below is a sample of some of my work. Only a select number of my paintings are available for sale and if you are interested in anything, please contact me. I don't paint as often as I do my creative photography or my zentangles, but I will add new pieces from time to time, check back soon!
