I find a close connection between my music
profession of the past and my artwork of the
present. As a retiree I enjoy more than ever
before painting by myself, or in a group.
Years ago, first painting with local artists in
Salisbury,  I wished for the painting
community that we have today.  The Plein Air
Carolina group is here and now and it has
gotten me outside again to paint.  Getting the
color onto the canvas or paper as quickly as
possible influences my work.....Color is so
important to me, whether it is watercolor,
acrylics or oils.
