Watercolor paintings--arresting moments in living color.

Nancy Duvergne Smith

Art is a burst of life that leaps from the artwork into the eyes, the brain, and the very cells of the viewer. It is visceral, enigmatic, pulsing with vitality. For me, form and watercolor are the expressions of this life force. I wet my brush and see what happens. Sometimes it’s wonderful, sometime not, but it’s always an adventure.

For subject matter, I love figures, waterscapes, abstracts, as well as plants. My style ranges from sensitive modulations of color and value to expressive work, often with calligraphic details.

When my brush touches my subject matter intimately, I feel successful.
