Watercolor paintings

Lee Copen

I paint fleeting moments of beauty found in the landscape. It is not that beauty is rare, I believe the opposite is true, every moment is beautiful but it is also always changing. My art is an attempt at capturing that moment before it is gone.  I am especially inspired by skies, water and trees. I love to paint outside whenever possible, because all of your senses are involved in the experience.  In the studio I work from sketches and photographs. I paint with both oils and watercolors depending on my mood and the circumstances.
