I’ve been told my work is different, but then what’s wrong with not being a copycat. I love doing animals and plants. I’ve been lucky enough to have had a few paintings on display at the Philadelphia Flower show. I enjoy my retirement, because I have the time to paint and occasionally spend time at one of the galleries I belong to. I amaze myself with the variety and scope of my abilities, as they keep growing by leaps and bounds. I paint with watercolors and oils, acrylics, pastels, ink resist, and egg tempera, but my favorites are watercolors and oils. At first the watercolors frightened me, I didn’t want to touch them, but now its my go to. I’ve only started doing oils more often, mostly to slow myself down some, I’ve done close to two hundred paintings.
I paint because I enjoy it, because its relaxing and once I start there is no stopping me. I also paint so that others might be able to appreciate my creativity, and maybe make it part of their own experience. I am not a big follower of abstract, although I manage to throw something out there every once in a while. I am much more comfortable doing a landscape, and I think it’s a big plus to do local scenery and historical places.
I belong to the American Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Society of Botanical Illustrators, Bucks County Audubon, the New Hope Art League, Doylestown Art League and New Hope Arts. I am mostly self taught, but have taken classes at the Baum School of Art in Allentown, and the Banana Factory in Bethlehem. I belong to some local galleries.
