          There are more missions for me to see but so far I have travelled to the ones on the list. While there, I took several photographs.  Later, in my studio, I used the photos to create the paintings.  I wanted to be able to recreate the paintings in small quantities but in order to keep costs down for the consumer, I also needed to reduce the time I spent creating the paintings and still be able give my consumer an original piece of art.   Photocopy machines and computer printers will not handle the heavy weight of the watercolor papers.  After a lot of experimenting and trial and error I devised a way to transfer my inked images onto watercolor paper.  I'm pleased with the results and hope you are too.
