Irondequoit artist David Brun is displaying watercolor paintings at the Parma Public Library, 7 West Ave., Hilton, throughout September.
Brun started painting in 1975 as a hobby while working as a mechanical designer at Gleason Works in Rochester.
He said his inspiration comes from the natural beauty of the four seasons in the state, as well as porches and windows of older homes in the area. Images of gardens, flowers, sailboats, waterfalls and area barns found their way into his paintings.
The self-taught artist uses a combination of two techniques: the loose, wet-in wet painting followed by a tighter, more controlled dry brush method.
Brun taught adult classes and workshops in Fairport, Greece and Irondequoit, and presented many one-man shows. He is a member of the Suburban Rochester Art Group and displays his work at galleries in the state.
