Elements that I'm drawn to in a piece of art. Simplicity first, then relationships between shapes, colors, patterns and then I am always looking for a story of some kind. Or at least the hint of a story. I do love a good mystery and anything having to do with nature and how we see and experience it in different ways. These are things I'm trying to remind myself of when I begin making something and I'm in the muddy muck (or arid planes) of my imagination.
These two watercolors, though very small took a couple times before they felt right (what ever that means) and I was mainly thinking about the many ways we travel to find home, on the inside as well as the outside.
