Ray Goodrow is a watercolorist and strives to capture movement and spontaneity in his work.  His personal style reflects the uniqueness of the watercolor medium and its endless possibilities for creative accidents and colorful explosions.
With a background in Architecture and Historic Preservation his subject matter often reflects an interest in the built environment and an effort to capture a sense of time and place.  A Texas native, he has lived in the Washington, DC region for over thirty years and has taken classes at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and the Chesapeake Fine Arts Studio.
