Peony Holy Fire, Phoenix Rising, In Progress

Peony Holy Fire Phoenix Rising shown in progress

Have you ever wondered how an artist creates a painting? Exactly, or even just a hint— how do they do that? That's the question that put me on the path of creating such works of art. From a very early age, I knew myself to be an artist, though, I had no idea what that meant to others. It's a mystery how these things come into being, even to one who is creating. As an artist, I'm in a constant state of discovery. I stand aside while these things are made manifest. If my mind was involved, it would never happen. Here you can see Peony Holy Fire, Phoenix Rising my painting in watercolor from the winter of 2021.
