Over the years I have worked with the hand silkscreen printing, drawing media, quilting and collage. All the while I have continued to paint with acrylic, oils and watercolors. My works are included in these collections Ernst and Young, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Duke, Princeton, UNC, UVA, IBM, Texaco, AT&T, Time Warner, CSX, Verizon and the US State Dept. among others.


Trish’s Cutting Garden: the stages of a painting

Making Progress with Watercolors
This is my first session on my 2nd painting of Trish’s Cutting Garden.  The previous painting I stuck with a little too long.  There is a lot of detail but it is a little overworked.  This time I am trying for a looser approach.  The progressive photos will help.  The format is different 10″h x 8″w.  This time no pencil marks.  I am using the Ampersand clay board designed for watercolor. The surface really grabs the color.  There  will be no pushing, or removing color from this surface.

Now I must proceed slowly.  I don’t want to over work it.  I want to keep the rhythm, keep the flow.  Mind the white.
