"Places" Watercolor Series

During the past two years, we have traveled to several places where I was able to make paintings to capture the memories of place and occasion.

The three center row paintings were done while working with Mary Lou Ferbert in watercolor at The Cleveland Institute of Art during 1997. The "Red Paint Still Life" was done during a class conducted by Jess Reinhardt at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
