November 2023

Last year has just flown by, hasn’t it?

Welcome to my Website

We’ve been busy!

A little about me: I’m retired from contract work. I worked with a team of contractors for 18 years, writing courses for Microsoft. It was a lot of fun. I learned a lot and met a bunch of nice folks along the way. I miss the work sometimes.

Now that I’m retired, I can work on what I really love, and that’s watercolor paintings. I love to paint, teach, show and talk about watercolor! I guess you could say it is my passion. I’ll be posting some paintings on this page, and stories behind them.

We also love to travel, where I can paint whatever I please. Yeah, it’s a tough life, but somebody’s go to do it. Am I Right?!

Thanks for following!
