Works From Memory
These are watercolors reflecting remembered experiences. Earthbound reflects a childhood memory of a family trip to the Iowa woods to gather Morrel mushrooms. I obtained texture though the use of tracing paper laid on top of wet paint. Night Ice is a cold winter night by Lake Waban and is painted on paper coated with gesso. Waterfall is a memory of a “hanging “waterfall in a family trip out west. It incorporates Asian paper collage and watercolor painting.
