Color excites me -- seeing it, mixing it, working it into many transparent layers in images of heightened color and light bringing nature into crystalline focus. My large-scale watercolors of natural subjects have a vivid, dramatic presence and for me evoke the inner landscape of the remembered image. They are elaborately detailed, introspective, and can take from four to ten months to complete. Watercolor is my chosen medium because of the jewel like qualities of the colors and the fluidity of the paint as it moves across the page in a pool of water.
