This week I ventured into watercolors, which is a medium I rarely use in my art. The work, entitled "Returning home," evolved from a stream of consciousness. As I started laying down colors, the blended blues and greens reminded me of my home place, the Pacific Northwest.
Reflecting on my own journey back to Portland and my Asian heritage, I added representational pieces to the work, including migrating cranes, growing roots, and a patterned sphere inspired by vintage silk fabrics.
I really enjoyed working on this piece and am looking forward to creating more mixed media works with watercolors. To see this and other works I've created the last few weeks, visit my shop site here.
