I’ve been continuing to experiment with watercolor and it’s a super fun medium, I like that it’s both forgiving but also forces you to let go a bit. I’ve been doing mostly abstract type stuff, because that’s my jam, I will leave the realism to the experts. I wanted to combine painting with something tactile. I was inspired by Jane Denton, whose work is on my wish list. I used embroidery thread, which maybe was the wrong choice? I am not that precise and I have no patience so it’s a little messy.
