Check out the Natural Wood Color Small Serving Tray Art Print collections available at Artist.com.I have been wanting to dabble in abstract painting for a while now. I am in the process of moving and most of my art supplies are packed, including my paints. However, I found this little Japanese Sumi paint wheel that still had some old paint loaded in it. In fact, it was so old that I had forgotten the colors. Because I wanted to clean it and pack it up, I decided to use the paint instead of rinsing it down the drain. And these little abstracts are the end result.
As a watercolorist, I experience not only how the paint itself plays on the paper, but also how the water flows and mixes together with the paint. Water is the determining factor whether the paint is bold or muted. It blends the colors together and allows the paint to intermingle in a way that other mediums cannot. It is an active and complex partner changing both the absorbency and shape of the paper when it is wet and the outlines and appearance of the paint as it dries. I am challenged using watercolor paints because I am also anticipating and leveraging the behavior of water, rather than attempting to control or dominate it.
Watching the paint and water intermingle is truly magical. It allows me to be in touch with my inner spirit and lets my inner child play. It is an experience that stops time.
My artwork allows you an opportunity to experience how I view the world and how I see the "ebb and flow" of life. Please join me in my quest to see the world in a unique and colorful way.
