I don’t always know what I am looking for when I start a new piece, or maybe I have an idea but then it falls short of my expectations. But I am finding it is super important to stay clear in my mind about what I don’t want.

Besides the idea of water in various forms, what do these three paintings have in common? Well I’m thinking if I hadn’t painted Tidefall and Iceberg first, Rainforest Beach would have been an entirely different painting.
