“The Path” is the first piece in which I incorporated watercolor and ink washes into my traditional pen and ink.  I found this lovely tea room in Mount Dora, Florida. Years of love went into this beautiful arbor and my camera caught it in full bloom and on a sunny day at the right time of the afternoon. It took 5 days in Mount Dora to get my perfect shot – lovely days spent touring this charming town with its quaint and friendly restaurants.

I call this this “The Path” because it presented a path to a new look in my art, especially the use of ink wash and pencil. And discovering that less is sometimes more.

NOTE: Sadly the Garden Gate Tea Room was torn down for another restaurant. The arch is all that physically remains. As this drawing took 94 hours to create, I will hold that perfect day and the month or two doing the drawing dear to me. And the Garden Gate will be with me forever.

….As is Mt Dora.
