These paintings were done using oil pastels and water color. They are more about color, shape and texture than about realistic depiction. The shapes are rather flat, with the surface texture providing the only real feeling of depth.
The bright color and simple, naive compositions are meant to evoke a cheerful
response. The images are first created in oil pastel, then I add the watercolor.
The oil pastels act as a wax resist, allowing the water color to  achieve interesting effects as it “puddles” on the paper. The “Squash,” “The Crow” and leaf pieces were done in the fall. The flowers were done in the dead of winter.... my desire for spring!
