Art somehow seems to nurture my soul. I enter a place of focus and relaxation, finding deep satisfaction in the process of creation. A subconscious restlessness eases away and I am filled with contentment.
I enjoy visiting art shows and learning about the artists and their process. A few years ago I started painting with acrylics. With friends we formed a self-taught art group, setting aside Tuesday evenings to paint, brainstorm and talk.
Eventually I started taking painting classes and workshops that led me to watercolors. I love their transient, fluid quality and my homegrown vegetables and flowers are favorite subjects.
