In late 1978, I started a drawing class and began to experiment with watercolors.
In April of 1979, I took a watercolor class.

This is the second piece I did in that class.
It was the first painting I ever did that I considered successful.
It is also one of the only paintings I could never part with.
Later that Spring, I entered my first art competition and won. The prize was an art scholarship. So,
I switched my major from Pre-Med to Art....and have never looked back !!

From 1979 to 1996, I worked mainly in Watercolor. During that time I completed hundreds of paintings. Here are a few.
