For me there are two perspectives to practicing art – the first is the relationship between me as an artist and the work. I have a concept and try to render that onto paper in pencil, pen and ink or watercolour. Sometimes I do preparatory sketches and other times I just dive in. When I am in the zone, the work flows and I lose myself in the work. The other relationship is between the artwork and the observer. An observer uses their own experience and context to look at the design, colour, and texture. Sometimes an observer will connect to the work in a special way and maybe become the owner of the work. For some reason, when someone buys my work this is always surprising but is also affirming and humbling. I mostly practice in watercolour or ink on paper. The two works in SeeChange 2020 are a combination of both and in another change, both are completed on light blue coloured archival art paper. I am happy with the result of of this combination and in some ways it is a melding of my early sketches and recent watercolours.
