I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper, using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.
Bonfire - Each of us has an inner fire that we can call upon for standing up for what we feel is right. Traditionally the fire element represents action, power, passion, and creativity. In medieval times salamander nature spirits were thought to provide the spark for starting the fire. When looking into a fire and seeing all the movement of the colors, it's easy to see why they thought of salamanders. I decided to add them to the fire. This painting expresses that power within us during dark times.
