Throughout the year I visit friends in Templeton California where we take morning walks with Codi, their dog, through the hills that surround their home. It is a beautiful location with wonderful views from each hill top. The colors change with each season and many times we see deer roaming through the grass unaware that we exist. It is truly a tranquil existence and that feeling inspired this painting.
I have selected to delve into the world of art in the fourth chapter of my life. I have always enjoyed art museums and the variety of interesting ways people express what they feel or see. My background is in finance and politics so this endeavor is a wonderful departure and enlightening experience. I truly enjoy the learning process. There is so much to understand and express through this medium. For now most of my work is in watercolors, a bit of mixed media and some acrylics. I have found this is a great way to network with other artists and share my work with friends. Please enjoy my work and watch it evolve.
