I work intuitively layering and adding elements trying to find the flow for each particular painting. The layers also create an interesting surface texture. A strong compositional foundation was important to me when working through the beginning stages of this painting. In time, it was more about bringing in a more playful element. The painting is a strong and sturdy due to the heavy watercolor paper used and the weight of the acrylic paints. I initial my paintings (MEC) and sign/date on the back. Original 2014
