About Bathtub:
An image that came to mind when thinking about what to paint was the bathtub and things floating listlessly in its dreamy froth. This led to other paintings of similar feel-good experiences. Like previous work, I strive to pare down images to their essential elements. I consider carefully color, atmosphere, negative space, composition, and also spend a lot of time studying the properties of watercolor. For this series, I experimented with materials and techniques that were new to me, and aspired to showcase this process in the work.
