Trains have been an interest of mine as long as I can remember, more so in the last ten years using them as subject matter for watercolor works of art. A somewhat self taught artist, I also over the years have attended local community colleges taking several art and design classes. Yet I feel that my regular one on one instruction from Aurora artist Joyce Ruland has given me an understanding of watercolor which I could not have achieved elsewhere. I feel watercolor is a tricky yet forgiving medium which enables me to produce vignettes of an era long past.
