I have long been drawn to imagery of water, with its constantly changing depths and surfaces, its mirroring of sky, clouds and wind. My recent mixed media paintings are inspired by the changing seasons as they reflect changes in our lives.
I let the line and color move around the paper, zigzag, flow up and down, above and under the water, moving with the breeze.
