I first attempted watercolor painting in my high school art class. I wasn’t happy with those first efforts, and wanted to try again, but work, children, and travel kept me too busy. At last I took up painting again, and I’ve been much happier with these results. I use watercolor, colored pencil, and ink. My favorite subjects are flowers and outdoor scenes.
Late Summer by the River illustrates a tree on the bank of the Olentangy River, where my husband and I volunteer as Ohio Scenic Rivers Stream Quality Monitors. This painting was awarded a first place in an Ohio Valley Regional Arts Council competition.
