Covered Bridges


I've always been fascinated by images.  As a child I read National Geographic and Life magazines, and even today I can tell at a glance if I've read an issue because I'll recognize the pictures.
By age nine I was taking photographs with an old Kodak Brownie, by ten I was friends with a local photographer and learning to develop my own film, and at eleven my grandmother gave me her used 35mm. camera and I was a "professional".
Photography led to drawing.  My earliest drawings were doodles on the margins of high school textbooks.  These slowly evolved into pencil sketches and pen and ink drawings (see The Pencil Art of Kirk Ramsey ).
Eventually I gathered up my courage and entered the world of watercolors.  With the help of the gifted watercolor artist David Rankin as my teacher and guide, I was at last able to bring color to my world of black and white.  Watercolor painting is a journey I will probably continue for the rest of my life.  There is so much to learn, so many different styles and techniques to experiment with, and a world filled with beauty that is waiting to be captured.
