After the third night at JJ's Beach House Vacation Rental in Yachats, Oregon the paint flowed and I had the feeling that the paintings painted themselves. Of course the energy of the house was at play.

The most important part of making this painting is feeling good about the Hawaiian colors and how them make me feel. This painting is on a full sheet of cold press Arches watercolor paper.
In Hawaii I learned to flood the paper with pools of wet color. It didn't take long to dry even in the humidity. When I did the same at home the color was heavy so I used the shower sprayer on the paper and the edges of the green and Naples yellow lifted leaving the white. Happy accident!
