Watercolor has always fascinated me, the effects of pigment and water mixing on paper are so unique and challenging and the results so beautiful.  It is also the perfect medium for capturing those fleeting moments and light effects when working on location.

Watercolor painting, to me, is about making a direct statement.   While I do like a degree of accuracy in my work, too much forced control deprives the medium of its very essence.  I believe the best way to engage a viewer is to pique their interest with strong shapes and a nice composition, then allow them to ‘fill in the blanks’ with implied details using a combination of lost and found edges
