My photo
When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.

A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll

As I was going thru my files, I found this little gem that was an experiment in the limits I could put on watercolor.  I put many layers of paint on this painting and washed it off after each layer using a running faucet of hot water.  There is not much control over the process but a big part of the process has to do with what colors are applied and how long the paint is allowed to dry.  All I can say for sure is that it was fun.
