New Project - "An Artist's Year In The Garden."



I'm painting flowers from my own garden, day by day for a year. Watch for new paintings here on Daily Paintworks, and read about the project on my blog (click on the link above). 


Although she now works full time as an artist, Julia earned her Ph.D. in microbiology and worked for many years as a research scientist.  “I was always interested in art, even when I was a working scientist.  My training in science taught me to observe carefully, which is important in painting.  Learning to really see things is crucial for a painter.”Julia has studied privately with Suzanne Welch, a watercolorist in San Jose, and taken classes with George Rivera, Executive Director of the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara.  In addition she has attended workshops with Warren Chang, Stephen Scott Young, Mary Whyte, Rose Frantzen and Sherrie McGraw.

 

"I paint slowly, trying to absorb the details and the mood of the subject.  I often paint in thin layers, building up glazes of color. I’m always trying to paint the grace and beauty around us in the material world.  I don’t have to travel far and wide to see it – it’s around me in my home and garden.”
