I work with watercolors in both usual and unusual ways . I say this because more than a few people who view
my exhibits, say, “Oh, I’m surprised to find out you work in watercolors “. I think I’ve had that response because I use paint directly from the tube to capture the most vibrant color effects I can achieve. And this is true with both light and dark colors. So my reds, yellows blues, browns and blacks are vividly portrayed . I also, in contrast to those strong colors, use water soaked paper towels soaked in paint to wipe areas of the painting to create a wide range of color effect from very pale to quite strong.

I studied at, Yale graduate school of Art, with Joseph Albers, and was very influenced by his views of color and their effect.
