July 1997

Little River with Trillium Essence:

This second painting (see Diversity) with the Trillium revealed another of it's secret. SAND ! It is like sand ! It is porous like sand and dries out extremely quickly and hard. I was amazed when I looked at my palette, after not have painted for a few days. It was very, very dry. Here on the North Coast we have serious mold/dampness problems. Nothing dry out. It is also like sand when it is wet. It is not very moveable. I t became grainy when it dried on my water color paper. I will admit I helped it by using pigments that lends themselves that way but only after this essence showed me it's propensity for the effect. Again the deeply rich colors express themselves, much to my delight.
