The Skin, Hair, Water  & Earth Series

Shape, line & color capturing the  experience of skin. Full of motion each original watercolor is on mystery watercolor paper purchased at auction but with a feel of a cold press paper. Size: 18 x 24 inches,   Price: $850 each, not framed, plus $20 for shipping in the USA.

The Series has morphed from my interest in elephants, their skin, fur, hair, my love of color and the influence of water (I live near the Great Lake Huron). I see interactions of the of all these elements in not only the animal world but in our own culture as people. This series seems like a natural evolution of my own work, an abstraction, showing where I was to where I am today.
