Abstract mixed aquamedia painting from my gemstones series on Arches 300 lb cold press paper.

I am fascinated by the concept of serendipity – the spontaneous discovery of one thing while searching for another. I rarely plan my art. I prefer to LET it happen rather than MAKE it happen.

    The watercolor painting group just altered themselves to just be Water Media – nice possibility for you!

  • Glad to hear that – I’ll check it out. I haven’t done pure watercolor for about 25 years – mixed media is much more fun.

    This is where some of my dreams go; I am mesmerized! Cannot wait until you are creating again, but since it is all new to me, I am just enjoying the show!!

  • Wow! Thanks for your kind words!

    I just have to add, you know, it is a rock wall talking to me and I slide down the tree to the roots that connect to the light………and…and I am gone…..woooow!

  • Thanks again! One of my favorite things about abstract art is that every viewer sees it differently! I once showed one of my abstract paintings to a group of young kids and asked what they saw – I got everything from cotton candy to a fish swimming in a cave – all in the same painting. Fun!
