Watercolor painting offers so much variety. You can create saturated bold colors or very light stains.
I have always been drawn toward the image of the scarab and I think the bold colors support the stylistic lines in this piece.
This series creates a story in my head. Scarabs breaking out of eggs that are actually all the planets in space. Our Earth is shattered and from the molten explosion a sacred beetle is given life. The universe transforms in the mind of those who are left to ponder our small existence on the surface of an egg that birthed an insect.
