"Judy #2" by James Taylor

20 x 13 inches, watercolor on paper -- framed

James Taylor 10/30/1951 - 12/03/2016, in discussing his work  "I began painting in 1992 while recovering from a debilitating illness. During my convalescence, I began to see the humanity and spirit of the people I encountered, along with colors, smells, and the play of sunlight on things and scenes that were around me. Watercolor became a good medium for expression of this newfound awareness and I became especially partial to figurative subjects. I discovered a very strong character in people, which is revealed through their challenges, disappointments, and the rewards of holding things together through relative obscurity. It is this strength of spirit that I am compelled to express in my paintings. My goal is to involve the viewer in the insightfulness and humanity that art has to offer".
