Enchanted Places

These watercolor paintings suggest the emotional state of being you feel when you have been affected

by a special location you can’t forget, no matter how long ago you were there.

Not content to simply record the reality of a location, my transparent watercolor paintings capture the colors and feelings that are evoked when something familiar and well traveled suddenly appears fresh and new again.

I find inspiration in memory and the everyday world. Italy, Ireland, England, and several States are some of the locations that I have painted to express a place etched in enduring memory.

Monhegan Island, Maine, Rocks

Watercolor on paper 16 in x 12 in. Rocks, glowing by the light of salt ocean and sky are full of ragged textures and rise steeply from the water on Monhegan Island. Be careful when walking. They can be dangerous. If you slip into the water, you will surely drown, as the current and ocean waves are not forgiving.
