Donna Larson is an accomplished watercolor artist.
In the artist's own words:
"I have always been interested in all kinds of art and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I have a fine arts degree from Cal State Fullerton specializing in drawing and painting.
While working full time and raising two boys, I continued to take art classes and settled on Chinese Brush Painting to explore and perfect. I became intrigued with the loose and free style of this type of painting called Po Mo (meaning to throw ink or paint). The brush dances across the paper, laying down paint in a spontaneous manner.
Having recently retired, I now have time to develop my watercolor techniques (a combination of eastern and western styles). My subject matter comes from the places I've been and the things I have seen. Besides landscapes, I love to paint animals, especially horses. Watercolor lets me depict my enthusiasm for nature's beauty. I like to capture the light within the white paper, by surrounding it with dark shadows and various textures. To me, light represents energy."
