Please Stay Safe Everyone!
In painting abstractions I see things about myself come out through my choices of forms, colors and brushstrokes.
Honestly, I was amazed when I stood back and really looked at this painting to see how deeply in my subconscious I am being affected by the coronavirus.
Please stay safe everyone!

It has been some time since my last post.
This summer has been wonderful, but it is passing by way too fast.
Hope your summer has been delightful too!
Here are couple of my new experimental bubble paintings, watercolor on 140# cold press watercolor paper.
The initial process involved mixing my professional grade watercolor paints with home made bubble soap.
Then I began blowing bubbles with the paint mixtures, capturing them on my watercolor paper.
From there I pulled the paintings together with watercolor glazes, direct painting, finishing with opaque white watercolor paint.
There we so much fun to create!
