Watercolors from alum Ray Cole

Alum Ray Cole (B.A., 1956) had a 40-year stint in the advertising business after graduating from the UW School of Communication. He now resides in the small town of Carpinteria, California, where he has found a passion for watercolors. Although he has been artistic for as long as he can remember, watercolors never seemed to work until after he retired and something just clicked. Here are a couple of his paintings from his recently released coffee table book. All of his paintings can be found on his website at raycolesart.com, and be sure to check out the main website to learn more about his life:
