Art notes: watercolors, a deep way of seeing

Watercolors are one of my favorite artistic media. I used to think of watercolor painting as weak and washed out. Then I encountered the work of Gail Gage, Winslow Homer, Vivian Swift, Mary Whyte, Andrew Wyeth and nature journalists and changed my mind.

I enjoy memoirs about the creative process and so I'm looking forwarding to reading Whyte's Down Bowhicket Road: An Artist's Journey and Workings South.

And, of course, any time I can look at watercolors by Homer...

or sleeping dogs....

I'm happy.
