I love to paint in watercolor and acrylic and sometimes use both in mixed media. I am drawn to the beauty of nature. That means many things appeal to me especially flowers and near and faraway places. I've been to Italy, Hawaii, and Montana to name a few. Quite accidentally, nature itself may supply you with a perfect picture with the best composition,form,and color. It's a gift. It's just a matter of being aware of what the world around has to offer me visually as an artist.
