I love color and shape and try to bring both of these qualities to my watercolor paintings. The works of stained glass and quilting artists are so beautiful that I wish I had time to learn how to make them; so the next best thing is to create work that often captures their essence. I sometimes like to wet the paper and scatter paint around with no real plan and see what emerges. I need the trip to be more fun than the destination arrived at! The lack of planning adds to the fun!
