I love to walk around our small town in the springtime looking for new flowers starting to bloom. This Gladiola was in a neighborhood not far from where I live. I loved the colors. Pinks and peaches just seem to glow on flowers!
I love painting in watercolors. I love the way the colors glow through each layer and fill with light, like stained glass. All my watercolor paintings are painted on Arches 300# cold-pressed, bright white watercolor paper. Arches paper is archival and acid-free. I use M. Graham and Winsor and Newton's professional watercolor paints. My colors are permanent and archival and will not fade or change color! I will never paint with fugitive colors no matter how beautiful or vibrant they are. It is important to me that my paintings will last a lifetime and beyond with the proper care and attention.
