Some days it’s a blessing when I am forced to stop painting. The rains came and I packed up to head home with what was essentially and ‘unfinished’ painting. However, in viewing my painting later I knew it was perfectly “finished’. The freshness and looseness is what I love about watercolors and I feel this painting says exactly what it needs to say about the black lava cliffs, the surf crashing and palm trees suggested in the distance. It caught the moment.
