"I am drawn to watercolors because of the transparency and luminosity I can achieve with them. I paint primarily to depict the beauty of light and the delicacy of the medium enables me to capture the range of variations in value and color that light reveals, from striking to subtle. The objects I paint are mostly an excuse to paint the light that plays off their surfaces. Sometimes the light is reflective and creates almost abstract patterns of that which surrounds it. Other times it is translucent." ~ M. G.
