I plan to post current paintings on my blog site. I'm not much of a writer but I do love to paint. I do oils and pastels and I teach workshops. I plan to sometimes post demos and talk about how to create a painting as well.

Why watercolor? I love working the figure from life. It keeps us fresh, observant and forced to make decisions quickly and with authority. I learn a lot from doing this. I am used to doing oil and pastel figures but with watercolor, I experience a greater challenge. Watercolors are "dangerous"...one often feels they have a life of their own. I am learning to be free with accuracy, let the water define my shadow shapes which in turn, define the form.
