Historical

HISTORICAL

 

I often create watercolor scenes of historic buildings and people from the past. Using old photographs as reference, visiting and painting on the spot, I design watercolors of situations that might have existed. When I come across certain historic buildings, I wonder who inhabited them. Is their presence still there in some way? I explore the families, the kitchens where they sat, the ghosts, and the lives they lived long ago, before the internet and cars were invented.
