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.

Why Stop with a Mud Facial Number 12

Who wouldn't be happy to get a full body MUD facial.  Today I tried a new kind of watercolor paper.  New to me that is.  I used Fabriano 300 lb, cold press paper.  Well, not all water color papers are created equal.  The way they are made effects how the paint reacts on them.  So all of what I usually do, did not work on this paper.  I had to use much more paint and the colors did not mix the way I am accustom to.  Any way you look at it, I had fun and it was a challenge and I ended up with this adorable mud drenched pig.
