This is a reproduction of an original watercolor by Alda Kaufman of Dubuque, Iowa.
Born of Latvian parents in Munich, Germany, Alda Kirulis Kaufman immigrated to the United States in 1951. A long time resident of Dubuque, Kaufman studied watercolor painting under numerous nationally known artists and is a signature member of the Iowa Watercolor Society and Iowa Artists.
Kaufman finds watercolor perfectly suited to her personality and talents; "The medium has a mind of its own. Challenging and unpredictable, it adds spontaneity to my work." Kaufman enjoys experimenting with new surfaces not normally used with watercolors and occasionally incorporating mixed media. "Interpreting the world through painting gives me endless hours of pleasure, and sharing with my fellow artists and patrons completes the experience."
