Sue Quinones fashions her watercolors with a decorative, stylistic ink drawing and incorporates her watercolor techniques to create art that reflects her past, present surroundings, and memories. The watercolor named “Chinatown Memories” is no exception. This floral still life was based on a road trip to visit art galleries in New York City when Sue and her boyfriend, Jose, now husband, were in Art School.  They went to Chinatown to eat dinner and saw an oriental shop that had a beautiful handmade soapstone vase. Jose bought it for Sue to commemorate their trip.

Watercolorist, Sue Quinones captures the fluid quality of watercolors with the control of decorative ink lines. This enables Quinones to create a definite style of her own. Rich in color and patterned in technique, each painting demands your attention.

Quinones enhances vintage objects in her watercolors and generates a connection by bringing them alive with touches of florals. The vintage objects in each of the paintings have either a personal possession of importance or have items that belong to a friend or relative. It attaches a special meaning to the work further adding to the nostalgic atmosphere of the watercolor.  Come take a look and go back in time to a more relaxed era of real wood, clocks, lace, and crackled glass…
