"Five Pears and a Pineapple" Watercolor on Arches 140. I first treated the basket with gum arabic and am sorry I did. I wanted to be able to lift the lights out but it made it too hard for the washes to stick while glazing later on. The pineapple comes from the name of the quilt which I made probably 15 years ago. Easily the most difficult one I ever made. I hope to try another quilt painting at some point, this is my second one.
I am a New England watercolor artist. I began painting in 1997 and enjoy painting everyday.I work on both Arches cold and hot pressed paper and yupo paper. I enjoy showing my work in local galleries and juried shows. When I am not painting I'm either gardening or painting old furniture.
I hope you enjoy my work and I welcome your comments.
