Each of these watercolors tells a story. They recreate a memory or an emotion or a reaction to a place I have been. This storytelling has evolved from repetitive images within one painting, to related images in separate paintings, and finally multiple painted images within one picture. And, this repetition takes on both realistic and abstract forms. In the relationships within and between paintings, I’m exploring the notion of "like but different," and that which makes it different. Whether the differences are color changes, definition of shapes, or various snapshots in time, those variations and references all help tell the story.
