M. Donna Good (°1941, Muskogee, Oklahoma, United States) is an associate member of The Texas Watercolor Society and River Art Group Gallery in historic La Villita on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Donna's watercolor paintings and mixed media artworks develop through a radically singular approach of beauty that is nevertheless inscribed in the contemporary debate, Good uses references and ideas that are so integrated into the process of the composition of the work that you will want to take the time to explore how and why these images transport you, like a time machine, long after you’ve seen them.

Donna's paintings establish a link between floral and landscape’s reality that while imagined by its conceiver, these works focus on concrete botany that determines our existence. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, she investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what rivers, mountains, and flowing fields of grass means to us. Appearing to present a factual reality, her color palette swirls an illusion fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

Her layered translucent watercolor works are a drawn reflection upon the art of painting itself: thoroughly self-referential from a thousand backroads driven with her husband and traveling buddy, Bob, through Texas, California, Montana, and Oklahoma researching family genealogy and fly-fishing and inscribing in the history of watercolor landscape – made present most palpably in the artist’s exploration of some of the most hallowed of watercolorist paradigms. M. Donna Good currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas USA. Donna is known for her exquisitely detailed floral watercolor paintings and is an avid jigsaw puzzle enthusiast.
