"Of all the mediums, watercolor is the most idiomatically unique. After all, the vehicle used to move the pigment is water. And, what is more “Zen”- like and quixotic than water? A good watercolorist learns to give up his ego to the medium. He draws and plans, but, in the execution of the painting, he is prepared to allow the water to take him in directions that he could never have dreamed of.watercolor
I think my watercolors most strongly reflect my love of travel, and the exotic. My studio shelves contain dozens of sketchbooks full of watercolors that I have painted in countries all over the world. They serve as a constant inspiration and a reminder of the places I've been fortunate enough to experience."
