Artisans of the Pee Dee
Frankie Bush

Medium: Painting

Inspiration for my work comes from the beauty that is around us. Each of my paintings is a personal response to that beauty. My watercolor paintings are done in the studio. I photograph nature to get my ideas and record details that people often don’t see. As I work I am concerned about design, color and shadow. I continue to evolve as an artist.

I chose watercolor about two years ago as my sole medium. There is excitement to the transparency and the opaqueness of watercolor that allows for the bold as well as the delicate. I invite the viewer to share my experiences of painting flowers in close focus.
