For the first nine years of my painting journey, I worked almost exclusively in a 10.5″ x 14.5″ rectangle. This size is known as “quarter sheet,” since a full sheet of watercolor paper is 22″ x 30″.
A couple of years ago, an early buyer of my work mentioned seeing paintings that were wide and short – perfect sofa paintings. The idea stuck in my head, but I started playing with tall and narrow so I could focus on skies.
This is my current sky painting, depicting an early summer sunrise in the San Juan Islands. Others are in the works, so stay tuned for updates!
