① Artwork:

Midnight Jaunt

This watercolor is a figure study in cool shades of blue, purple and green. This small-scale composition is composed of simplified forms that emphasize relationships between color and shape. While the artist often works on paper to create studies for large-scale oil canvas paintings, this watercolor and ink image is fully realized in its vibrant immediacy and compositional fluidity. This work is part of a series that loosely portrays pairs of androgynous figures dancing afloat in fields of patterned color.
