I began my journey into art with water-based media. This piece was done with water color and ink. I started it in a class. What is now the hillside was supposed to be an ocean wave but I mixed the paint too thick. I liked what happened but I set the piece aside for 6 months before deciding that it was a hillside like you would find in a gravel pit in northern Minnesota. That’s when I added the trees and the background to the top of the image.
