Stars. Sails and Sea

8" x 10"  watercolor, acrylic, and rice paper on 140 # Arches

On a failed painting, I attached some Japanese rice paper and began adding color a little at a time until something clicked.  First I thought this would make a fluffy kind of bird, but quickly decided it was a stormy sea with a sailboat confronting the waves and water.   It is not exactly the type of painting I usually do but I like it.  I like the colors, the shapes, the texture and the illusive thought that it is pretty non representational.  The conception came with the doing....kind of backwards from planning a carefully thought out composition. It will be available tomorrow June 15, 2013, at the demo at Dale Street Cafe
