ABOUT THE BOOK:
LIT FROM WITHIN: SATURATED WATERCOLORS is primarily a collection of my watercolor paintings in full color. It also tells a brief story of my evolution as an artist. While it is not a "how to" book, per se, it does include a chapter demonstrating how I work. The foreword of the book was written by Maureen Bloomfield, editor of the Artist's Magazine. The following is an excerpt from the introduction page of the book:
What sets artists apart is their ability to see, coupled with the discipline to develop the skills necessary to express their vision. For me art- making begins with nature and the world around me; I examine it closely, and then interpret what I see and feel in my own language. My language has evolved over time. When I discovered watercolor, I became passionate about the medium and could hardly wait to get into my studio to see what images unfolded each day. Painting in watercolor became my language.
This book is about my artistic process, and includes a decade's sampling of my watercolor paintings, 1999-2009.
