I have fond memories of watching my grandfather paint on the weekends but it never occurred to me that I, too, could learn to paint. I was successfully employed and had enough to do, or so I thought! But a few years before retirement and after a visit to the Hermitage in Russia, I started painting. I have been fascinated with all the things watercolor can do for almost ten years now. In the winter months I usually paint florals because they bring  bright colors into overcast days, and in the summer when I am not working in my garden, I often paint pictures of boats. However, anything I see that fascinates me or encourages me to look again is an opportunity to stretch and grow with a paintbrush in hand.
