Painting: Watercolor on Paper.
I live in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountain Range in Washington state. The mountains such the clouds up on the west side and wring them of their precipitation so that our are is notable dryer than other areas not snuggled up against the hills. The scenic beauty of this region is highly inspirational in my work. There's natural beauty at every turn.
I intend viewers to experience the peace and calm of a gentle rain when imbibing this painting. Life can be difficult - It's important to take time for breathing and relaxing.
I choose the combination of watercolor and fine paper to make my work because there is simply no other medium capable of displaying pigment so nakedly. water carries the paint to the paper and evaporates. We have cotton and minerals remaining. I love it.
