Agave Verde Print by Sandy Haight
I was just moving out of a phase of painting my "Persistence of Pink" show of macro views of primarily pink flowers. The rich greens of this hefty Agave dove me onto the other side of the color wheel. That new direction became a series of large succulent paintings that I spent 2018 working on for a November show in Anacortes, WA. My watercolors reproduce beautifully as prints or on canvas.
I was honored to have this painting juried into the 2019 Transparent Watercolor Society or America show, TWSA, that just came down in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The juror was Laurin McCrackin.
For the past few years I've been painting flowers up so close that they envelope the viewer in their sensuality and rich color. Enlarged, they become almost abstractions from nature without seeing the outer shape or the environment around them.
