I have always admired watercolors – the contrasting light and shade, soft and hard soft edges. I never took an art course in high school or college, but having retired from a career as an economist in Africa (including 4 years on a WWF wildlife project in Zimbabwe), have been very fortunate in having had the opportunity to take workshops in Africa and Greece with Hazel Soan, an amazing watercolorist, who has studios in Cape Town and London. She has inspired me to keep taking on challenges, and to enjoy painting African wildlife as well as local scenes in Marin County.
