Tributaries

Piece description from the artist

Generally, my watercolors are totally unplanned. I pour paints, letting nature and gravity take command. This procedure is repeated over and over, allowing each stage to dry, while constantly scanning the piece for the idea 'waiting to come out.' Painting for me is completely intuitive. What oftentimes happens is that I end up with a very surreal, or dreamlike result, as is the case with Tributaries. I named it thus as I see things are connected, one to the other. Rivers flow into other rivers, man and woman are connecting, and
even a human eye is linked to an escaping figure. Looking at it from a distance, I see the face of Queen Isabella of Spain.
