So, I am sitting in class creating this abstract scene, mixing colors, waiting for the watercolor to dry. Alexandra encourages me to test out a variety of techniques and not just stick to what I often do with watercolors. So, I start creating shapes in my piece ... and loving the process! What started as a play of color ended up being a scene with a storm approaching a meadow, with a few trees bending in the wind. Interesting, the moment captured in my art work reminds me of a trip to Kenya I took several years ago. While watching the horizon and admiring the beautiful animals strolling by, a powerful storm came through quickly bringing in wind and rain and then being gone in a minute or two.
I finished my piece almost surprised about how my abstract actually captured a scene I have experienced a few years back. I just love this about art: the potential for memories and new creations; the potential to bring in experiences and turn them into something new.
I am excited to share that my "Storm on the Horizon" is on display until March 11, 2018, at the VisArts in Rockville, MD. It got juried into the annual Student Exhibition.
