As the River Flows…

as-the-river-flows

“As the River Flows” is too long for my scanner. The drawing is 15″ x 3″, an ink drawing on heavy paper with watercolor. It’s an image of a totem, something I’ve been exploring lately. This totem has a bird singing at the top, as the bells ring, and the river flows through it. It’s also part of a series of works titled River of Hope.

When Hearts Take Flight

WhenHeartsTakeFlight

“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

HorseOfGold

“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
