Before Glass...Watercolors

Years ago. I loved to paint watercolors. The transparency, the color washes and the luminous qualities really speak to me. I saw similarities between watercolors and glass for those reasons. I had always wondered if I would find a way to combine the two mediums.

But recently, I have decided that it's time to let some of the sketches, quick studies and paintings go, along with my acrylics. So today, I am going through my old folders and pulling a few that might fit into mats or frames that I already own, so they can be sold.

This one was a result from playing around one afternoon. I had seen these rather bright new colors and wanted to try it out. Bright? Absolutely, but what better way than a spring flower signifying new life.
