I’m a participating artist in the upcoming Beautiful Grim charity art show that will be held in San Francisco this spring to benefit cancer. I’ll need to turn in a digital image of my final painting in just 3 weeks, so I am currently visually brainstorming ideas. This watercolor represents one of my first ideas: a brilliant spark of warmth and light in the midst of a canopy of towering walls that encircle everything. I’m not sure if I’ll continue with this theme, but will probably be doing some more watercolor studies over the next week before beginning on the final art.
