This piece is not quite done yet, but I've been in love with it every step of the way. I keep hearing Mount Kilhuea in my head as I paint the hills, but I don't have a clue what it means yet. What I do know is that I would love to have this on my wall and gaze upon it daily. I can hear the waves crashing when I look at it. And I'm as tickled pink as the clouds because I was able to paint a heart shaped cloud in the same manner I've observed clouds forming. What a true joy to dedicate myself to this work.
Before this, I had never painted anything tropical. Most of my watercolor experience was in my elementary years and very little at that. The remainder of my watercolor experience is in the belly dancer series & cartooning I did between 2005 - 2010. I'm blown away by what I can do. I feel like this is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm so, so, so excited to see an idea from my imagination based on input and inspiration from a new client turn into something this magical and colorful.
Stay tuned... I've more watercolor pieces in the studio that I will be sharing soon!
