Each created watercolor is a snapshot, a painting that will stand for a perfect moment never to be recreated again. Color bounces in and out of the pieces creating dimension and tension. Thin areas enhance the natural color of the watercolor paper and canvas while layered colors act as a scrapbook of history, looking back into the past. The different shapes of the blooms of the water, the organic tonality of the color and how it seeps into the paper and canvas all carry weight and importance.
The majority of my watercolors produce a layered, liquified surface. Transparent areas contrast with condensed spaces creating a push and pull within the piece. I have ultimate control over the watercolor once dried, technically outlining the spontaneous, natural flow of water with bamboo pens; capturing the smallest moment of color and light.
