Grey Darden

Artist's Statement: I was born and reared in Balboa, Canal Zone, in the Republic of Panama, but Valley Head, W.Va., is our home of choice for retirement. My husband, Don Morfitt, and I live on 40 acres in the gorgeous mountains of West Virginia two miles south of Valley Head where we and own and operate “Hello House B&B”.

My husband, Don, makes custom frames. My watercolor paintings are displayed and sold at the B&B, the Mike Sewock Salon in Clarksburg and at Artists at Work on Davis Street in Elkins.

Retirement from years of school nursing overseas offers me a great opportunity to be involved with all aspects of painting. My favorite things about watercolors are the way colors can run together to produce original unnamed colors. A zillion colors waitingfor a name! They erase easily with water (if you don’t wait too long). They can stand a hot shower if you need to start over. And they sparkle plenty. In a room of paintings they hold their own. Like a breath of fresh air they entice the viewer.
