Watercolor artist and teacher

Many people think that watercolor is difficult, when, in fact, it is easy. Crisp lines are as easy as fuzzy lines, mistakes can be easily corrected.  It is easy to clean up, or just leave it in a mess.  Nothing is lost.  Supplies are as cheap as Crayola Watercolor paints.  

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Art is knowing which ones to keep."

-Scott Adams

"We do not merely want to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough.  We want something else which can hardly be put into words--to be united with the beauty we see to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become a part of it."

-C.S. Lewis
