watercolor on canvas; 24×18”

“This work, like others in a series of over 100 related watercolors, reflects both the chaos of the pandemic and my attempts to make sense of it. Recognizable objects may or may not come out of my initial mark-making. Painting for me is a process of sensing what is needed and using color, form, and line to achieve some sort of balance within pictorial space. I confess to not knowing how any given picture will turn out.”
