I have no formal art training, but I have built up an expansive library. These books have been my teachers -- always available when I have some free time at any hour of the day or night.
Flowers are my favorite subject because they remind me of my Grandmother's flower garden. She had a wide variety of fruit trees in her front yard, and she grew rings of flowers around each tree. Starting with the tallest flowers near the tree trunks, each additional ring around the tree was progressively shorter until the flower rings converged in sweeping curves and finally everything was edged in white alyssums. As a child, it was like running around in a fairy garden. The tallest flowers were just my eye-height so the beautiful colors and sweet smells surrounded me. I am over 60 years old now, but her garden is still my most favorite memory, and I always think of her when I see a beautiful garden.
I enjoy the way watercolors always give surprises. An artist never has total control of the medium, and this is what keeps it fresh and exciting. The challenges always call me back, and when I'm drawing or painting, all problems go away and I'm off in my own world -- back in my grandmother's flower garden.
