"I am amazed at the way Lisa Marie makes the picture look as if it were easy to paint.
Knowing that watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums, she has a gift putting
objects and colors together. When I look at the Abstract Landscapes and Inspirationals, I feel a sense of peace and serenity. There is a part of her in each painting that makes me feel at home....a scenic view of tranquility. Something we all look to find in everyday life. Lisa Marie has found it and expressed it in her artistry. I thank her for the gift she has shared with me."
