I painted these with watercolor on wood (I coat the wood with clear gesso to prevent it from absorbing the paint). These paintings are all inspired by my love of nature and my love for myth and story. I try to present things from nature like trees or fungus as dramatic and expressive characters, instead of background scenery.
