I am a "representational" (probably better known as "realistic") landscape and seascape artist, preferring watercolor and acrylic. I am most inspired by the sometimes overwhelming beauty of colors and contrasts seen in Nature especially in the late afternoon or early morning when shadows are long and colors are intense. My aim is to have others share the same experience.
