I completed this large watercolor last week for a dear client in Australia. It’s painted in loving memory for a friend who passed away and I’ve tried to express these Arctic Terns emerging out of a brooding mood into an ethereal sky. While painting, I often listened to two albums that became soundtracks for the atmosphere, space, and energy I was looking for. Zola Jesus’s Conatus and the soundtrack from Beasts of the Southern Wild. I love the final piece and wish I could share it with you full size! At 28″ x 36″, it’s one of the largest watercolors I have yet completed.
