Watercolor has become a passion and very much a part of my life. First I have to be inspired. It helps that I often have my pad and pencils with me in my daily travels. With my architectural background, the fundamental visual skill of drawing is a beginning for my paintings. Drawing and painting clouds is a somewhat difficult task because they are in constant change

I draw my subject, whether it is a landscape or cityscape, and then, combining imagination, all the design elements, and most importantly, rational thought (my private thought process), I determine the mood I want and the amount of movement I want in my skies.

I also express a great deal of emotion to create the mood. I feel my subject, know it well, and I have gone beyond expressing technique to expressing the passion I have for watercolor”.
