The images I choose to paint represent my passions. The people and animals I paint feature expressive eyes that speak volumes. And the transparency of watercolor allows the viewer to see through the image. As of late, I have developed a fascination with capturing the process of aging. There is a beauty and wisdom that we often miss in today’s bustling world.
