Splash 15 coverAs an artist I have to say that I am not a purist. I tend to work in whatever medium will get the job done and easily produce the results I am looking for. I have been known to combine mediums and some organizations frown upon this. Watercolor societies often require that you do NOT mingle it with anything else. This has led to frustration at times for me and this is why I believe a lot of artists find watercolor difficult. When North Light Books had a call to artists for Splash 15, I knew it was the right venue for me. It involved “capturing the novel approaches, beautiful accidents, and fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants moments that artists have creatively expressed in their unique visions and anecdotal captions.” This had me written all over it! I submitted one of my favorite (almost 100%) watercolor paintings of my pet iguana. Not only did they include it into the book, but they made it the featured image for one of their chapters!
