My Watercolor Paintings

I try to keep a list of ideas of thing I would like to share on my blog. I've been thinking about sharing some of my watercolor paintings for those of you who may not be familiar with me as a painter.

As I have written in other places, I painted with watercolors, pretty seriously, for just over 20 years. It started with 2 classes at a local junior college, and that was it. I was hooked. By persueing watercolor painting seriously, what I mean to say is that I painted very regularly, one to two full days a week (because I had a pert-time job), and also sent out slides like crazy persueing representation for my artwork in galleries. I had many local shows and sales, and also displayed my paintings in shows and galleries in other parts of California and nationally.

So here is a sampling of my work. Of course my images changed over my 20+ years. About the last 5, I was enjoying photographing flowers all around town, and then painting from my photographs.
