My paintings are done in the traditional style of transparent watercolor, leaving the paper for the whites. Painting in series is a great way for me to explore subject matters in depth. In the still life paintings, “Wrapper Series” and the “Foil Series”, I find exploring the reflective and transparent surfaces of the objects compelling as in the “Pond Reflections”” series. I also can’t resist floral subjects, especially cactus flowers in their contrast of beauty and severity.
