I consider myself an expressionist painter, heavily influenced by previous expressionist artists as well as by Asian artists. Hopefully my paintings have something to say about nature. I use nature as my primary inspiration and a metaphor for emotion.
My paintings are transparent and opaque watercolor and gouache on paper, 8 x 11 inches or so.
Every painting is an experiment. With my approach to watercolor comes the impossibility of knowing how blended color layers will dry. I may change a painting by rinsing the paper and doing something with the remaining image to achieve the completed painting.
