My watercolors are painted in a drawing style because I'm creatively challenged by realism - the way things really look. I have a lifetime Love of trees and nature in general. Reality is always unpredictable because when I try to paint something to look like it actually looks to me — it always takes on a life of it’s own. It is Altered Realism.
There is a noticeable difference comparing my painting style from my first studies with Gage Taylor and the paintings that followed later while I studied at the College of Marin.
