My watercolors mix planning and spontaneity. I use pure hues and values from a preselected palette, ranging from untouched white paper to the darkest colors achievable. I paint on dry, vertical paper with areas of downward flow (improvisations) intentionally preserved. I use exaggerated contrasts to heighten drama and express the dichotomy of chaos and order characterizing the organic, curvilinear subjects I prefer. Cocoknots, a neologism, is part of a palm series.
