I have developed an appreciation for watercolors and enjoy the challenge, the movement and light.
I continue to learn and grow into other mediums: oil, acrylic and photography.

Bayeux France -7x11 Watercolor- The Aure River runs through the center of Bayeux, which is 4 miles inland from Normandy. It was the first town liberated after D-Day and it took just a day. Its buildings were virtually unharmed by the landings, because German forces were occupied in Caen.
Population is 13,000 and is an excellent base to visit Normandy's D-Day beaches.

Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness Scotland.
