P Lil Wilson Watercolor

WELCOME to my visual art site.  The work is distinguished by my efforts to paint in watercolor (mostly) in a loose and abstracted manner of still life and landscape subject matter- local and far-flung locations along with work without a subject.   I consider myself  to be a tonalist painter;  I frequently paint what I’m feeling and that evokes a mood by way of color, shape, texture and space.  

I prefer to abstract images - gives the obvious reality an added dimension, more possibilities for the viewer to imagine and appreciate.

I was born in the frigid farmlands of Wisconsin,  raised in Southern California and have lived most of my adult life in Northern California.  Working class… so my 30+ year working life as clinician for the hearing impaired and counselor for teens was peppered with my interest, time and pursuit of art.  These efforts have served me well to fulfill a need; to interpret and transform the chatter in my head  into joyful if not satisfying visual representations for me -creating a bit of a balance and understanding of this mixed bag of a world- discerning  in my inevitable subjective way the wheat from the chaff.

My portfolio here offers a glimpse , a sampling of my work. 

Thank you for visiting.  

You can leave  a message for me in my email ( see below) with your questions/comments about my work, prices, etc..

Note: EAST BAY OPEN STUDIO around the bend-see you June 1 and 2 at my garden studio.
