Blue Plaid

Materials: Liquid watercolor, powdered iridescent mica and mineral pigments, binding medium, smooth finish paper, varnish.

Process: I start by choosing colors. I work intuitively to create flowing colors, textures, and patterns, running combs through the paint and applying and adhering powdered minerals. Varnish.

Narrative and inspiration: This painting is inspired by the wool fabric which is produced in Argyll, Scotland, also the homeland of my Scottish ancestors. The subtle thread weave is symbolic of "The Night Watch," protecting the farm animals, the homestead, and the lands at night. In my painting the quiet, refined, and subdued hues are reminiscent, strongly protective, and mysteriously timeless, all art of my cultural heritage.

"Blue Plaid" was made during the making of "The Weather" series and "The Storm" series.
