The one best way to decorate your home is so that people notice and talk about it.
Art is the jewel of your home. Art sets your home apart from other people’s. It is something you have personally selected to represent you.
A painting can capture the excitement and memory that a photograph cannot. A painting makes you look beyond the lines and colors evoking an emotional reaction.
Why water media (watercolors and acrylics)? Watercolors are alive and flow, creating natural movement and energy.
Think of all of the characteristics of water. Water can be deep. Water can trickle. Water can storm and water can be peacefully still. Water can roar or babble or tinkle. Water can envelop and soothe. A watercolor painting can be any of these.
A painting that you connect with catches your attention and stops you in your tracks. There are new areas to be discovered and familiar ones to be revisited.
What do you respond to in a painting? Is it a style, color combination, technique or subject? How does it make you feel?
I would love to hear from you. Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or comment on one of my blog posts.
We love your art!!! Your pieces have been a big hit! Our clients LOVE them 🙂

David Williams has been painting all of his life but has specialized in watercolors and water media since 2010 when he realized that chasing flowing pigment around in a puddle of water with a brush was analogous to the lack of control over the rest of his life. But much more fun.
He says “there is a natural lack of control in water media which adds to the naturalness and excitement in a painting”.
His representational style emphasizes vivid colors, emotional content and storytelling over strict realism.
He has lived in the Madison area since 1990 and is a member of the Madison Watercolor Society and the Madison Art Guild.
Dave has studied with watercolor luminaries such as David R Becker, Tom Lynch, Ratindra Das and Sterling Edwards.
His works have been shown at the MMOCA Gallery Night, UW Hospital, UW Humanities building, UW Human Resources building, Hatch Art House, Absolutely Art, Yahara Bay Distillery, Mother Fool’s Coffee House, Mineral Point Paint the Point competition, the Riverfront Arts Center in Stevens Point and the Pyle Center in Madison, WI. He has been given two different honorable mentions by Wisconsin Regional Arts Program.
Your painting makes me smile every day! :). I love my painting, and actually it changed my life….Call it a re-birth if you will, but it does give me comfort. It’s got good karma.
