Who am I? I am an only child, a caring mother and grandmother, my husband’s best friend. I love my family and my friends. I love kitties. I am an award-winning artist, graduated with a degree from Colorado State University in Art Education. When I am making art, I can lose myself in it. Athletes call it “the zone.” I recognize it as a very productive segment of “lost” time. I should set an alarm clock if I have something important I must do.
What do I do? I am a watercolorist. Many times my media is 100% watercolor, but I find it fun and more interesting to be free to add acrylics or collage materials to my watercolor paintings. For a change I will also paint in acrylics. I use strong colors and try to include values from very light to very dark in most every painting, even beach paintings.
Enough for now. Here's a painting to start you thinking.
