I am a Colorado native, so I grew up loving the natural environment and the wild Rocky Mountains. Until recently, I always considered myself a watercolor artist and felt confined to that little “box” I put myself in. On a quest for discovery and healing, I took a workshop in mixed media techniques. Since that day, I’ve been obsessed – I’ve found a new and different way to express myself and my emotions. I’m on a constant quest to find unusual and discarded “things” to use in my paintings. I’ve used everything from plaster, twine, metal, foil, and even broken windshield glass. It all somehow becomes symbolic in my paintings and signifies a feeling or emotion. Thanks for joining me on this journey and this adventure we call life and art!
Watercolor Rottweiler Painting, "Chance and Tiller", by International Watercolor Artist, Donna L. Martin
This is a painting I completed to donate to the Rottweiler Rescue. Their names are Chance and Tiller and they belonged to a very good friend of mine. When she saw the painting, she had to have it for herself. I have to be honest, when I first took on this challenge, I did not know if I could do Chance and Tiller justice. When I delivered the painting and saw the tears of joy in my friend's eyes, I knew it turned out alright!
