These nonobjective watercolor paintings are about balance and sensual, fluid forms. The organic lines, forms, and colors create a sense of compositional harmony in each painting, but as a whole, I tried to surrender control of the work's outcome and paint intuitively. The medium lends itself to much spontaneity.
Now that I am finished with college and once again removed from thinking of art in a traditional, competitive sense, I am striving to return to the core of what creation is fundamentally about (for me, right now). These paintings are a reflection of my journey to create peace and balance in my all aspects of my life.
