After practicing law for many years, I started painting instead. I am surrounded by inspiration: delicately-colored, cloudy skies and incredibly brilliant sunsets; the beach, of course, where the waves lap the shores in lacy foam; the elongated shadows of a canopy of trees on a country road or just the market where, as I’m picking up food for my family’s dinner, the great contrasts of colors - deep red radishes, blue-black eggplant, orange, yellow and green peppers - can just take my breath away. And so much of this everyday beauty looks to me to have been originally rendered in watercolor, with layers of bleeding, blending, transparent and opaque hues, that I’m moved to try to recapture, interpret, preserve and share what I see. How lucky I am!
