My latest series of watercolors reflect traditional painting and a modernist pictorial exploration. I love to use layers of color to suggest places like this doorway. I let the colors flow into each other and flood the entire sheet of paper. In such bleak times, this series of doorways and windows have become a metaphor for hope and perhaps even, a new beginnings.

This is a view of the colorful interior I found in the Forbidden City in Beijing. I was suprised to find this fanciful architecture and thought it was meant to convery to the viewer a sense of harmony and well being.
