First Snow - Imagined Woods Series, 11.25 x 15, Original Watercolor
The cool snowy frost can be felt when you look at this painting. The snowfall is early and some green plants are still poking up through the snow. Promise of more cold to come. Time for bundling up and staying cozy is just around the corner.
Imagined Woods Series - during quarantine, I became obsessed with what I am calling the Imagined Woods series. Some were dark and foreboding, some were light and hopeful, others feel in between. I explored sizes, shapes, processes and color schemes. Most have multiple layers, with the distant trees hinted at with pale color that were applied wet into wet. Since we were quarantined in the winter and spring the branches are bare but waiting for new life. Even the dark and mysterious ones hint at a distant light.
Professional Watercolor pigments were used on 1/4 sheet of Arches 140lb paper. The paper is torn by hand to create a rough edge all the way around. Every effort is made to create straight edges. Please forgive tiny imperfections, they add to the authenticity of one-of-a-kind art. You can choose to frame with the edge visible or mat it for a clean edge.
This is an original watercolor painting.
No reproductions are permitted.
I am happy to produce commissions that will allow you to choose colors, size, etc.
