The Open Doors Studio Tour Spartanburg is a self-guided 2-day event, each spring, that is free to the public.
I have been painting and drawing most of my life. Art helps me to both escape and cope with life. While I enjoy painting with acrylics and pastels, I find watercolors the most challenging and enjoyable. I generally use intense colors. I also find great satisfaction in drawing with pencil and charcoal. Watercolors is what I focus on presently. My subject matter varies yet generally my art work includes flowers, trees and still life. While not necessarily following their style, I find Wolf Kahn, Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keeffe inspiring.
