Some of the painters who have influenced me:
Mondriaan, Hopper
O"Keefe, Weyeth

van Gogh, Rembrandt
Picasso, Escher

Since this is my second blog page, it generally takes me longer (sometimes very long) to reply to your comments, but I do read and love them!

- One of my early watercolors, signified by the sharp edges of Bridal Veil Falls at Yosemite. This scene was this year totally immersed in water!

Thought it would be fun to do my pic of my painting for Midweek Blues, hosted by Rebecca
 for Watery Wednesday at, hosted by 2sweetnsaxy, 
for Skywatch at on Friday, and for 

Weekend Reflections at by James. 
I thank all these hosts!
