About my Images

I am watercolor artist. I have veered from traditional painting using brushes, paper and paint to using the computer. My tools now are digital brushes, software, and a digital tablet.

I am now able to paint more of what I see in my mind's eye and enjoy the instant gratification.
I hope you enjoy this site.

Checking the Coop

We live in a small north Georgia town (Ellijay). On the weekends, we sometimes entertain ourselves by trying to make new discoveries about our area. On one of our trips, we were more than a little lost and stopped to ask for directions. The people here are very friendly and helpful. Before this gentleman would give us directions, he wanted to show us his chickens. His name was Bob. Bob had chickens all over the yard, but was especially proud of the ones in his chicken coop. He was pleased that I wanted a photo of him and his chickens. I bet he had no idea a painting of him and his chickens would end up on the internet. He then gave us our directions and we were on our way. I'm not really, really sure if we could find Bob again.

You at least have him on file. Your digital watercolor technique is really amazing!

Greetings,

Your transformation work is incredible. The story you tell reminds me of my trip to Ireland forty years ago, when I too asked for directions but first was introduced to his animals, served a cup of tea, some homemade bread, names of the hills around his cottage and then told I was on the right track.

Warmest regards
Egmont
