I’ve started a new technique
and a new series
The WaWa Bridge at Watonga
Watercolor and paper cutting
17″ x 13″
I’m combining watercolor painting with paper cutting and I’m really enjoying it.
I have always considered myself an oil painter, it is what I got my BFA in. Unfortunately, I need studio space to use oils and I just don’t have it. Painting fulfills a need in my life and I’m not willing to stop, so I have switched to watercolor for the time being.
I love working with watercolors and making vibrant pieces. I wasn’t satisfied though, I wanted something more. I don’t quite recall how I started paper cutting, but I like what it adds to my pieces.
Both the leaves and the entire bridge were painted separately and then cut out and glued on. I used my tiny writing to create the branches for the leaves. Gotta get that writing in.
There are some spots around Houston that I find eye catching and I want to recreate these. They are my favorite spots and I want to share this beauty with others.
I love Watonga Park in NW Houston, it has such a wonderful and peaceful vibe. I especially like the bridge, and have named it the WaWa Bridge.
