Painter – Water Color


Each time I start a watercolor, the challenge begins.  I am just so curious as to where the painting will lead me.  Planning and design are important, but the juicy, intuitive process brings many beautiful surprises. 

I want to transform the blank page into a new way to see a scene or image.  I like playing with pigment, dramatizing the image with bold, interesting color choices, leaving the contrasting whites brilliant. 

Watercolor is always surprising, and every painting is a journey into the unexpected.  I don’t know that I am always in charge, but watercolor is a welcome, if unpredictable, partner in my adventure.
