"God is the most subtle of designers. The artist works to bring something
of the excitement of this design and form in the natural world to
the attention of all viewers, so that our vision of even the mundane may
be changed. I paint in transparent watercolor because of the medium's
versatility, and because of the active interplay among the colors, the
water, the painting surface, and my visual ideas."
