Since I now have two separate areas for watermedia and oil painting, I wanted to inaugurate the unused area for a watercolor. At my residency last winter I had been frustrated in my efforts with Yupo, the idiosyncratic plastic 'paper'. After years of working with it, I was baffled to lose my touch. This small piece came forth and without intention seems to be a way to proceed on my large, stymied creek painting. After a good session last night, I`m encouraged.
