Bundle of Leaves 20 x 28"  watercolor on paper

I make most of my work by direct observation of nature, using watercolor or graphite on a ground either of prepared canvas or paper. The focal point of my images is often centered on my subject, hovering as close to the edges as possible. I see beauty in the imperfections and weathered aspects of a weed, a withered leaf or a gnarled tree trunk. Burdock, dandelion and teasel plants are considered weeds, they are my favorite subjects.
