I am doing small, intuitive
watercolors all within the theme of storytelling. I am stretching and pulling and trying to allow things to evolve. When I think I have lost something I take it further and lo and behold it comes to a happy conclusion!
I am using watercolor in transparent but also in thick layers like I use my acrylics. Very iconoclastic I know, but so satisfying!
The question of course is, can we re-write our stories and what does it take to do that?
How much of 'us' is fixed and how much is the end-result of this entrapment in our own 'story'?
I can only answer these questions for myself, and this I will be thinking about while preparing for my coming show in April. I am so happy and involved here that I woke up at six thirty and did laundry, cleaned a bathroom, vacuumed a third of the house, called Elli in Greece, called Lucy's dentist and did my list for the day, all before nine in the morning... I AM GOOOOD. I am guarding my precious studio-hours like a -...-well, I don't know exactly what, but something ferocious...!
I will leave you with some inspiration:
