|*detail* In-between Storms, 9x28", watercolor on heavyweight paper|
Just another waves-for-days painting inspired by those Washington Coast storms I've been lucky enough to witness in person. There is simply nothing like that organized chaos and energy...it is awesome and a reminder of a much bigger world than my own.
Thank you for visiting!

|Ocean Shores study, 6x6", watercolor on 140lb soft press paper|
I've been experimenting with watercolor lately. There is so much to learn...but I'm enjoying re-programming myself to paint light to dark (instead of dark to light in acrylic and oil), the immediacy of the paint being grabbed by the paper and water, and the rolling of the dice as I let a section dry. Stay tuned...

Every once in awhile, if I'm lucky, there's a small section in a painting that just sort of does it for me. Floats my boat, so to speak, even though I often don't even know why. I tend to go back to it for encouragement and focus on it when I need to ignore or let go of something elsewhere in the piece. I'm not sure if other artists do this too or if it's just a quirk of mine...though I suspect I'm not alone.
