Contemporary Abstract Watercolor


8" x 10" watercolor on 300lb. Arches paper

........ well I've been back to painting with watercolors again. It's been awhile, since I've been working abstractly with acrylics on canvas. I have a tendency to revert back to realism when I paint with watercolors. This one was different, more of the merging between realism and abstract with a lot of life!! Perhaps a reason for a change is because I've been sooooo inspired lately by what seems like the perfect colors in flowers. We were out at Nathaniel Green Park the other day and I took tons of photos and hope to get more photos this summer. They are just so gorgeous and beautiful. Also, perhaps another reason is that watercolors just seem more like a summer time medium. Another reason?- we've just been really busy lately making all kinds of changes in our home...painting, really, really cleaning, organizing and moving all for a very special reason. More on that later, but maybe that has also sparked a change.

Anyway... if this original watercolor has captured you then home with you it must go! It measures 8" x 10" on 300lb. acid free Arches paper. Winsor & Newton paints have been used for high quality lightfastness. Painting is sold unframed and will be shipped in a protective sleeve. $20.00 plus s/h
