"After retirement of 2009 one of the “bucket list” things I wanted to do is learning how to paint with watercolor. I didn’t get to start painting until June of 2011. I started at the Manteca Senior Center and in September of 2012 I began teaching the class because our instructor moved to Arizona. I totally enjoyed learning along with my fellow painters and started masa workshops, field trips, and a gallery wall at the center. After five years it was time for me to move on from the Center. This year has started a new adventure in watercolor I’m now a part of the Groveland Gallery and will be teaching watercolor at the gallery once a week.
I enjoy painting nostalgia, still life, florals, and animals. I like watercolor because it’s bright, unpredictable, and transparent. My style, I’m told is the American rather than the oriental impressionist style. I know what I like and learn all I can to keep painting. I hope you enjoy the exhibition." Janet Powell Mckee
