MEET THE ARTIST: The watercolor paintings on our cover and What’s in Season pages are by Oakland artist Wendy Yoshimira. She says: “I paint to capture a single instant, like the play of morning light and shadows on translucent flower petals or luscious fruit. These moments of intense beauty touch me deeply but are gone in a flash. Watercolor’s transparency and fluidity are uniquely suited to capture color, light, and shadow. Its quiet, wild flow constantly pushes the limits of an artist’s precision and control.”

North Oakland studio/gallery, from which she sells her original paintings and limited edition fine art prints. On Sunday mornings at her studio, aspiring artists gather for an ongoing watercolor class. The class offers a friendly, supportive environment for
artists at all levels, including beginners, and is open for new students to join each week.
