In Charles E. Burchfield's, Bluebird and Cottonwood, trees dance in the wind. Capture the swaying of tree branches and the undulations of their trunks bending to the forest winds, using your brushstrokes, symbols and colors to create your own forest. 

Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments.  Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator.  She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona.  After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from Art Center College of Design, California.  A member of the BSA, NFWS and NFPAP, she resides with her family in Buffalo, and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York for both plein air and studio paintings.
