"Painting a watercolor is an unfolding mystery. You don't know the outcome until the end!  
The artist has an idea in her mind, but the
 fluid pigments have minds of their own.  The 
painting evolves and the outcome is always 
a surprise,  be it successful or disappointing.  Painting watercolors is always a path of wonderment for me and I never tire of the journey." Diane Tharp has been a watercolor artist for over 20 years.  She lives in Auburn, California. Her paintings reflect her love of nature and the amazing colors and moods found in the natural world.
