I’ve been percolating on my list of words for the new year long enough… I’ve actually known which one is the winner for awhile, but spent some time considering a secondary word to choose, too. So, considering that 2012 was mostly spent focusing on projects other than my art (moving to Ohio, career researching, caring for my Uncle Jack), I think the perfect primary word for 2013 is: ESTABLISH. This relates to everything I’ve been planning for my art in the new year… more about how as I progress!
I’ve also decided on a secondary word that relates more directly to the art I will be creating: METALLIC. Many of my fans and collectors know that I’ve used metallic watercolors (and gouache and acrylic) for years, but I really want to explore the range of subtle-to-saturate with purpose. More on that as I progress, too!
Meanwhile, here’s a just-finished painting in my latest “panes” elementals with some great metallics.
