St. Augustine

For many years I've enjoyed the Spring arts and crafts festival which was in downtown St. Augustine; now located in a large open area called the events field.The artists would set up their tents on the lush grass, displaying their arts and crafts. I would gravitate toward the watercolor artists, noticing their skillfully painted images with brilliant colors. They seemed to love being in St. Augustine, enthusiastically chatting about everything but their paintings. There are beautiful images in old St. Augustine that would be inspiring to any artist.

My line and wash paintings are considered impressionistic. I love to see artwork that is loose but true to the particular form. As an artist, my goal in each painting is to use as fewstrokes as possible trying not to focus on the details. The wide brush strokes give my paintings an easy flow to the various colors and shapes.
