The Crooked Tree, an original watercolor by Sister Jane Becker, is matted in a 14" x 11" mat, with a 8 3/8" x 6" opening.
I paint scenes that strike me as so beautiful that I want to take them in more deeply somehow. I have memories from early childhood of enjoying drawing or painting—though I have gotten away from art for years at a time throughout my adult life. Each time I return to painting it touches my soul and deepens my prayer. I love the process of working with watercolors; I am never satisfied with the product. But this struggle challenges me to let go and take risks. I have taken various classes and workshops over the years. Locally, Fred Roberts and Laura Pommier were excellent teachers for me.
