Lorraine Watry

Tony Bianco Profile


I paint a variety of subjects, but a theme of reflective, shiny objects runs throughout a lot of my watercolors. Reflective objects like water, glass, and metal hold a fascination for me and I am drawn to the unusual, abstract shapes that are often in realistic subjects. These abstract shapes are a nice counterpoint to a bird, band instrument, or waterlily.

I tend to paint a series of the same subject over time and I have now painted quite a few birds in water, waterfalls, and waterlilies.

I enjoy showing the beauty of nature in these brief moments in time.
