This painting was lovingly done of a woman washing clothes under a bridge in Aveiro, Portugal. The painting was featured in the Portugal Group

The medium is watercolor. I use Arches cold pressed 100% cotton paper, and the dimensions of the original painting are 11 3/4 inches x 17 1/2 inches.

This painting was featured in the following groups: Washing, #1 Artists of RedBubble

This painting was featured in the groups “Portugal Group,” “Impressionism Cafe,” “Wash Day” and “#1 Artists of redbubble.”

I am drawn to watercolor because of the conviction that complete control kills art. Unless you remove almost all of the water, complete control with watercolor is very difficult. For me that would still the art and stop the fun.

My paintings are to be enjoyed and celebrated for the pleasure involved in their creation in the hope that pleasure can be passed on to others. 

My work has been shown in galleries and appeared in magazines.
