MARGUERITE BRIDE
Watercolorist

Wherever I go I cannot help but see the colors and scenes around me as a painting. Watercolor always provides a fun surprise….no matter how I may initially visualize the finished painting, the medium always tells me who is really the boss here. Often those little unplanned-for happenings are the most interesting part of the painting. When that happens, I just let the water do its thing.

Creating painterly architectural images is most intriguing for me…..what stories lay behind those walls? I always try to imagine when I am painting them. I especially love painting the old buildings and the lovely town centers here in New England.

I’ve waited many years before permitting myself to become immersed in art. The time spent in other professions has made this one all the more precious. For so long, it was on my “back burner” waiting; and now the wait is over!
