An endearing portrait of two bee-eaters perched on a branch by artist Michele Clamp. The closeness of the birds reflects a sense of companionship, their feathered bodies allowing no space between them. Their eyes and beaks point outward as if observing the skies above. A softer wash completes the image, rendered full of movement from Michele's use of a wet-on-wet watercolor technique.

Artist Michele Clamp creates watercolor paintings mainly of New England scenes and places she has a personal connection to. "Using traditional brushes and pigments, I enjoy how the simplicity of tools allows me to grapple with the challenges of watercolor," says Michele. "The deceptive simplicity of this medium has a huge attraction for me." As a scientist, Michele worked in many interesting areas including the Human Genome Project. And in 2017, she decided to paint full-time as well as teach art lessons and conduct workshops. Michele states that an idea can take months or years to filter through her brain before sitting down to paint on her easel. In her studio, she enjoys working in peace and quiet with her blinds open to the sun and the trees outside. "As I mostly use watercolor, cleanliness is not so much of a problem," says Michele. "And my husband keeps me on my toes by periodically asking 'Why is there paint on the ceiling?'"
