I have always liked to do art projects but considered them just "fun". After I retired from teaching at an elementary school, I started getting serious about painting. I have gone to workshops and classes but mostly just painted.
I use transparent watercolor on paper. I do a detailed drawing and copy it to watercolor paper. I then let the force be with me an put the colors where it feels right.
I like to do paintings that have the ability to evoke some emotion from the viewer. My love of animals shows in my choice of subjects.
