My home state of Colorado offers a beautiful and natural setting to study shape, color, and design - perfect for watercolor painting and photography.
Using digital images of photos I’ve taken, I then print them on rice paper. I use hot wax to block, and to create texture. Painting over the image with watercolor enhances the objects on the print. Then I remove the wax from the paper creating a transparent batik-like painting.
Painting since the mid-1980s, I have many hours of experience enjoying the physics of water, color, and organic beauty in nature.
