This is not a how-to on watercoloring, nor is it a gallery of finished works. Instead, I engage the process of learning to watercolor as an opportunity to reflect upon life and learning a new skill in later years. My spiritual path is Christian and therefore my thoughts draw from that well.

It was the 70th summer of my life. As if I suddenly realized I needed to breathe I had realized that I had to paint. Ghost Ranch in New Mexico offered a course in watercolor. Two weeks before my birthday I began to paint. Not the acrylics I had used off and on over the years. I wanted to begin all over again in a new medium--as a beginner.
Here is a photo of my work space on August 7, 2012. This is where I began to learn to watercolor.
