I love watercolors. I use wet on dry technique mostly. I use my Go Vision CCTV computer to enlarge the painting so I can see what I am doing. Some of my paintings can take months to complete. I am now learning to use acrylics so I can use my sense of touch as well, so one day if need be, I can paint totally blind as John does.

I only paint things that I think will make other people happy, that is what makes me even happier. In “and through the woods” it is the lane to our Grandmothers house. To most, it may only be a tree line lane in the country but to many it is a lifetime of memories that come flooding back at every glance.

In “Red Eye” it has no meaning at all. But everyone that looks at it seems to smile. That’s a positive emotion. I donated “Red Eye” and “Hibiscus” to the Florida Center for the Blind, to display at their campus to show the abilities of the vision impaired.
