About the Artist
I love to paint aliveness – the graceful and powerful motion of running horses, the stealth of a cat, the curious pecking of chickens trying to decide if that speck on the ground is edible. I paint in watercolors, because I enjoy the natural flowyness of that medium. The paint contributes to the motion in the painting. I get inspiration from many things around me, but the styles of art that have most influenced me are primitive cave and rock paintings and a style of oriental painting executed quickly, expressing the subject with few lines. I tried many things to get my paper to look like the walls of a cave, but after I achieved it, I got carried away with color. I've been an artist for most of my 73 years. I do many kinds of art but specialize in watercolors and murals. I’ve painted 17 murals commissioned by cities, plus many more for private patrons.
