I took a photo in my garden of this squash growing with some nasturtiums, and I came across it as I was looking for some inspiration for a monochromatic study. The crazy tangle of squash vines and flower stems caught my attention. The actual photo is upside down!
I adore nature, especially in U.S. National Parks. They hold my happiest memories, toughest physical exertions, and the greatest inspiration for my artwork. My watercolors don’t contain symbolism, harbor deep meanings or make personal statements. Sometimes faces appear when I paint, so I let them stay. Otherwise, my artwork is simply a reflection and celebration of what is going on in my imagination at that particular time. My favorite pieces are the ones that I’ve let God paint. I look at them and know that while my hand controls the brush, I am not in control of my hand. The Master Artist is.
