My recent watercolours with cold wax are large in scale, from 36" to 60" wide. They are mounted on 1.5" birch panel, gallery size. 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 the rocks of The Canadian Shield and 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 larger paintings are about my emotional response to the ancients: layered rocks and spirit trees.
