After a move this year to Centerville, MA on Cape Cod, I am transferring my blog to the WordPress platform. I’ll share my favorite places and provide some ‘insider’ insights for places to eat and happenings as well as my progress as I paint my way around the towns, beaches and harbors here. I’ll also share what I have been learning each week in my lifelong painting journey.
I have been painting since my early 20’s. At the time, I didn’t consider myself an artist – I was just trying new things. I studied with Walter Chapman, a master watercolor artist from the Northeast Ohio region, who was a wonderful teacher and gave me a sense that I could paint. My inspiration was my aunt, Corrine Leidner, who was also a well-known Toledo artist.
Since then, I’ve spent a life learning about color and light and texture and values. I am also a teacher and love to work with those who have always wanted to paint but are afraid to try or just don’t know where to start.
