“On a Blue Night” is a small ink pen drawing on heavy watercolor paper (5″ x 8″) with watercolor. I have a small series going, using this fish and forest theme. It’s a bit magical, a bit surreal. As always, when there are three of anything, it represents my two sisters and me.
“Seaside” (ink on paper; digital color). Thinking of the seaside, the sound of the ocean, the many surprises that the waves wash to shore. Cathartic.
“The Heart Machine” (ink on paper; digital color). 6″ x 6″
“River of Hope” is day #2 of my 30 days; 30 watercolors (6″ x 6″ on heavy watercolor paper). I work mostly from my imagination, which is what this is, an imaginary river-scape.
“Gone Fishing” is a small mixed media piece. It consists of a larger abstract painting on cardboard with a small ink drawing on thin paper glued across it. I cut out areas of the fish to reveal more of the underpainting. It’s very different from my usual way of working, but I found it interesting.
“When Hearts Take Flight” (watercolor on paper, 7″ x 10″). This little piece began as a series of wet-into-wet washes. After the washes dried, I looked for possible shapes or hints in the direction that I might want to take. That’s when I saw the dove. I added shadows and forced shapes to come forward (hearts and ribbons) but left the dove basically the same soft shape. The color scheme is warm (oranges and reds) with blue accepts. “When Hearts Take Flight” is SOLD but prints are available on my website (under “Watercolor Weekly).
“Horse of Gold” (watercolor on paper, 10″ x 7″). In this piece, I’m playing with negatives even within the body of the horse. The image is not meant to be realistic. It’s a symbol, a shape, representing the energy of a horse (an imaginary horse). The painting method includes wet-into-wet watercolor and wet on dry. The color is simplified because, as always in my work, drawing is foremost, color is secondary. This piece may be purchased on my website or through contacting me
