Connecting the dots

In Sync

#1112. “In Sync”. Watercolor collage on float panel. 8×8″, $80.

Occasionally, adding the foreground is an excuse to hide a boo boo.  In watercolor, it can be a bit of a decision between working over a small unwanted dark spot in the middle of a light area, and working to pick it up and repaint that area.  Sometimes the situation lends itself to one or the other.  This time I could’ve picked up those two dots, but it popped into my head to connect them instead, and put in a skein of geese.  As a counterpoint to another recent painting, ‘Up, down, up’, I thought I would put them all on the upstroke.  Hence the name.
