Painting

My primary medium is oil painting, I find everything about it seductive from its fragrance, to the many techniques you can achieve, to the simple act of holding a mahl stick and paintbrush in hand. However, when traveling I like the spontaneity of watercolors. There is something purely magical about recording observations with a "cake" of pigment & water. The colors are jewel like and the results often delightfully surprising.  -S. Lago Arthur
