Water it, and it will bloom!
Watercolor painting was rekindled in my heart when I began working with kiln-formed glass. My glass art process starts while outdoors hiking and surrounded by nature. So much to take in! So much that inspires! I take photos to help preserve the memories of a scene, a flower petal, grasses against a stand of trees.
Back in the studio, with new ideas in mind, the photos become references for watercolor studies. Why watercolor? Watercolor is a medium which offers a similar transparency in its layering of color that you get when you’re working with glass.
As these studies made their way towards my glass art designs, I became more and more captivated by this medium. In a short while my watercolor paintings began to bloom into their own nature art expression!
The theme is still the same. It’s all about nature in art! But now I get to use both glass and watercolor to share my view of our beautiful world.
…Together let’s add a splash of color to our world!
