I paint in watercolor because it scares me.  I love its quirky unpredictability.  I love the twinge of anxiety I feel every time I put down a color, knowing that I've often only got one shot to get it right. Piggybacking on my mobile photography addiction, I paint from my own photographic reference material. I never stage a photo and never travel in order to find the perfect shot.  Instead, I seek to find the awesomeness in the mundane, to capture snippets of color and detail that might otherwise go unnoticed as I go about my everyday life.
