Here are my watercolors. Having never been taught how to paint with watercolors, I found my own way, which developed into a unique style. I usually work from photographs that I have taken. For some of my watercolors, I strove to make the image as real as I could. These works have often been mistaken for photographs. Other times, my watercolors appear more as illustrations. These paintings can stand on their own. I also have used some reproductions of these paintings on my mixed media canvas works. l like the idea of bringing my older work forward.
