It has been a tough few months for many reasons. I haven’t had much time or energy for painting or drawing but I am beginning to get back to my studio. Have you ever noticed how your studio and drawing table get covered with lots of PAPER, magazines, flyers and other detritus when you are not actively creating? Well I am beginning to get my space organized again. I still have a stack of tax paperwork but that will be gone soon. Maybe I should do an abstract based on my emotional response to taxes…oh my!
Last week I completed this very small watercolor. It is not much larger than the image but was fun to do. I just played. Brushing, pouring, squirting. As many of you know I love color and I was trying to capture the idea of light splitting as it went through shattered glass. I have always been fascinated by the prism lightcatchers made by Pollyanna in the movie of the same name. So simple and such a beautiful effect. Light dancing on a wall…so beautiful!
