I discovered a love for painting when I was in my 20’s, and took a smattering of workshops here and there, finally deciding to concentrate on watercolor. My husband and I live in the Pacific Northwest (USA) and were fortunate to be able to travel a bit, particularly to the UK and Central America. We lived in Costa Rica for a year when he took his sabbatical, teaching in a Study Abroad program. That year gave us the opportunity to open our hearts and minds to the people of Nicaragua, particularly to the families of the many disabled children living in great poverty. Bill has held numerous workshops there, as we attempt to help people climb the slow road to providing their own means for their families.

I use a Canon G11.

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you enjoy my images.

At This Time of Year . . .

. . . we usually think of the baby Jesus lying in a manger. But here is a mind-boggling glimpse of the magnitude of that event: / “The God of Power, as he did ride / In his majestik robes of glorie, / Resolved to light; and so one day / He did descend, undressing all the way.” / – George Herbert / in 17th Century England / &…
