NATURE'S SYMPHONY—watercolors by David Stickel
NATURE'S SYMPHONY—watercolors by David Stickel September 1 - October 30 / Reception: September 11, 2 pm
"As I study botanical life, I never cease to be amazed with the beauty, order and complexity of the natural splendor before me. One of the many challenges I respond to as an artist is to capture and portray these wonders in the watercolor medium. These images intrigue my artist's eye as they speak volumes to my heart."
