I really like your watercolors. I took a class on watercolor last summer- I appreciate the art. great work! I especially like the koi and the papaya/figi apple ones.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

I started doing watercolors while travelling in Great Britain back in 1996 and I got hooked. The first couple pictures each trip are pretty rough but the more I paint during each trip the better they get.

They are better than photographs in many ways, you can leave out street signs, telephone wires, cars, etc. and just remember what you want to see. Also, since time passes while you paint each one you have memories embedded into the painting; I can remember the weather in some detail, where I sat or stood, the people that I met and how they reacted, etc. It's quite an amazing thing.
