Watercolor for me is all about the transparency and the glow. It is a love affair with light, as well as acknowledging the shadow, both literally and figuratively.  This medium is perfect for what I like to express and how I like to express it. I can choose to glaze layer upon layer and still have the luminosity, or I can use the medium in a faster sketchier manner, to convey something swift, an idea, a  fleeting moment, a feeling. It all depends on my mood and what my state of being requires at the moment.
