This is my favorite self portrait.  It pretty well sums up my thinking about watercolor painting.

About 10 years ago, shortly before retiring from my day job, I started dabbling in graphite and colored pencil drawing.  After retirement I decided to keep at it (and perhaps try to learn something).  To that end I attended weekly classes for a few years until I got the nerve to strike out on my own.

I work mostly in watercolor.  My pictures usually have outdoor settings and some sort of story to tell.  They often are set in the Southwestern U.S.  Although I currently reside near Atlanta Georgia I still have strong connections to Texas and New Mexico. I guess I just like arid, thirsty, and blistering hot places!

I hope you like the pictures and thanks for looking.
