Fine Art At Affordable Prices


Every once in a while I put my collage papers away and become a purist again with only paint and brush. I find watercolor the most difficult and unforgiving of any medium. At its best it's wet and immediate, spontaneous, light-filled, transparent and fun. At its worst, it's puddles on paper, unpredictable, uncontrollable and frustrating. It's only on a good day, when my head is in some very special concentrated space, my stars are aligned and the humidity is perfect, that I might be lucky enough to complete a good watercolor painting.
