My favorite subject is birds. Their shape, colors, textures, eye and expression are beautiful. I can get lost in their intricate anatomy. That’s one thing I just love about painting animals - learning their anatomy.
I’m fascinated especially by crows and ravens because they are so incredibly smart.
I don’t have a studio. I wish I did! I paint on a little table in the corner of my kitchen. Once I start something, I lose track of time and realize hours have passed when it felt like minutes. Taking a photo during the process helps me see areas that need fixed. I’m not sure why that helps. Tracy and my son Joe have both provided helpful suggestions. Joe encouraged me to follow my own watercolor path and incorporate pen and ink into some of my watercolor paintings.
