While in art school I fell in love with the medium of Watercolor. It is as spontaneous as an unexpected kiss on a romantic stroll with someone you love. The colors can be vibrant, subdued, intense, subtle, transparent or opaque. Whatever you choose can happen. But, watercolor can have a mind of its own and do as it pleases. It can afford the artist the opportunity to be carried away on a flood of watery colorful hues that independently choose for themselves where they will travel and how they will become positioned on the paper. Sometimes the results are breathtaking! It is a medium that shines when an artist allows paint to look like paint. No intensive tight control necessary to provide the viewer a sense of visual interest and intrigue. Splashes, splatters and juicy runs on the page are perfect for this medium and create even greater excitement as the work progresses. Sometimes the paint application gives the brain a suggestion of an image that has no actual link to anything truly representational. Yet still you see what the artist AND the paint desire for you to see. That's what makes this medium magic... fascinating... joyous... curious... compelling... fun!
