(Back to Watercolor portfolios)

 

Bookmark series, 2020

 

Lately, I have been painting small watercolor pieces I think of as simple bookmarks, each about 6" x 2.75". Though normally I do not paint watercolors to rehearse larger works, per se, I am experimenting with color combinations and compositions. Meanwhile, they are rather delightful to paint. And since I twisted my knee recently, I can work on these while seated on the back porch on a beautiful afternoon. 

 

While it may seem callous to indulge in trivial pursuits while the planet is so torn in strife, I do so in defiance of all that is tragic, cruel, stupidly polemical, hateful and ugly, in support of justice, grace, luminosity and awe.
