Quotes

Creativity is essentially a lonely art.

“Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.” ~Lou Dorfsman

Nature Art Botanical Watercolor
White Tulip with Dew Drops Watercolor Painting

There is a nice subtle effect on the petals of the flower and the dew drops. The droplets seem to shimmer and look as if they will fall at any moment. The high contrast of the background and the white flower is contemporary and dramatic. There are many subtle shades of different colors in this painting. I used my glazing technique layering the pigments on top of themselves creating a luminous depth. Unfortunately a photo is not capable of expressing the dramatic effect I achieve with this method.

Foxglove watercolor, a pink delight.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.   Pablo Picasso

My painting is a realistic detailed painting of blue iris against dark green leaves and stems. These iris are from the iris gardens in Northern NJ. Imagine a spring day sunny with a gentle breeze and along the back bank of the garden stands hundreds of this wild iris moving back and forth as if dancing to nature’s music. It is one thing I miss about New Jersey.
