People going about their everyday life are beautiful.  Given the right light, everyday life can be heart-stoppingly beautiful.   I try to catch that heart-stopping moment in paint.  And because I am an painter, not a photographer, I exaggerate color and contrast to capture not only the look but the feeling of the moment.

I paint the moment in watercolor because the paintings I am most drawn to are in that medium.  I try to take advantage of the difficulties of working with such a wet and unforgiving medium.  I love the happy accidents that come from the paint moving around on the paper by itself.  I mix most of my colors on the paper rather than the palette so that the colors change subtly across the painting.  No two shadows are ever exactly the same hue.
