Landscape Watercolors

 I moved to Utah in 1992 from New York having lived and traveled the east coast for many years, but I was born and raised in Missouri– pretty much self taught with some formal training in painting and design. I do have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Chapman University as well as some graduate work. I wanted to earn a degree in fine art, but my real job at the time dictated otherwise. I served in the military for many years from which I retired. From my earliest childhood, It seems like I’ve always painted or been involved in some form of fine art. I know there must have been a time when I didn’t paint, but I just don’t recollect when that might have been. I most enjoy painting the landscapes around me and I primarily use watercolors, but also work in acrylics, oils, and pastels as well. I like painting the old things and buildings that have been worn down by the many years. I like painting winter scenes that show me the bones of nature. I like those rich earthy colors. My painting style is what it is, at any particular time. I always use heavy paper and boards, because I fling paint, scrub my paper, and basically beat it to death in my painting process. I probably shouldn’t say it, but I’m not sure I could use anything other than the heaviest, thickest, roughest paper. My technique is not deliberate and I take what the watercolor paper and paint gives me. I often wait for the pleasant surprises that we watercolorists are so familiar with, and that is the reason why I’m so hooked on watercolor.
