       Watercolor Paintings


Welcome to my web site.  
I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings.

    Painting in watercolors has been my challenge and joy for the past 20 years or more.  I, like many people, thought the oil paintings were the only true paintings and spent many years painting in oils all the while missing the beautiful and delicate washes, the luminosity  and the happy accidents that only watercolors can create.   My paintings don’t have a message or tell a story.  I only want to portray the wonderful rustic structures that dot the Shenandoah Valley and beautiful wildflowers I find while hiking in the woods.  Click on image for a larger view.
