These watercolors on paper are a few samples of my first artwork in the late 1970s while I was living in Cambridge, MA and Fairfield, IA. In some of these early colorful works, I drew with pastels and then applied watercolor, giving a resist effect. These were exhibited by my first gallery representation, Botolph Gallery in Harvard Square, Cambridge. They are relatively small in size and almost completely sold out.
