My recent watercolours with cold wax are mid to large scale, from 36" to 60" wide. They are mounted on gallery birch panel. I have been excited by the new scale and surface treatment, since glass has always taken away from the tactile resonance of the paper surface. I've finally found a way to bring that surface back to my works, for the viewer to see my paintings as I see them. Naked and raw. The ancient history of rocks -particularly of The Canadian Shield and now Labrador, have always been deeply magical to me. Even as a child I thought of rocks as wise old friends, just as trees were ancient spirits, too. These new directions in my paintings are about my emotional response to the ancients: layered rocks and spirit trees.
