This gorgeous watercolor was created by my father, Bill Markowski in 1963. The location is unknown, and is believed he captured this scene either in Fredericksburg, Whimberly or Boerne, Texas. The original is signed. Great in any floral establisment or home! Enjoy, Aileen Markowski.
Bill Markowski was born in Depew, New York, February 1, 1922 and was raised in Detroit, Michigan in a Polish Community. He was interested in art ever since his early childhood and while attending Ferry School he won a scholarship and at 15 years of age studied at the Detroit Museum of Fine Arts, 1937 to 1938.
He enlisted in the U.S.Navy at age 17, serving three of his three and a half years of duty overseas. He was discharged in 1944 and attended the Meinzinger Art School in Detroit, Michigan from 1944 to 1948. He then, on weekends, studied fine art from George Rich of academic background and Leon Makielski, portrait painter. His schooling was completed from 1948 to 1950.
He studied 2 years full-time at Universidad de Belles Art...
