Esther Donlon lives in Westford, Ma and has been painting in watercolor for 30 years. For most of this time, Esther worked full time as a Technical Communications Manager and painted whenever she could in her free time. She took watercolor classes with several local Massachusetts artists including Nancy Russo, Kathy Cooper, Kathy Dunn and Cynthia Van Horne Ehrlich.
In 2010, Esther retired and has since devoted more time to her watercolor painting. In 2015 she attended a workshop given by Robert J. O’Brien AWS NWS in Vermont.
She likes to paint a variety of subjects such as flowers, landscapes and some portraits. Her flowers are very detailed but she also uses a “pouring watercolor” technique in many of her other painting.
Esther has won several awards locally and has been accepted into several juried art shows at local, regional, and national levels.
Esther is a Signature member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, an Associate member of the New England Watercolor Society, a member of the Brush Art Gallery and a member of the Chelmsford Art Society. She also previously served on the Board of the Chelmsford Art Society. To see more of Esther’s art, go to her blog: artbyesther.blogspot.com
