"The cure for everything is salt water..."

"The cure for everything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea"  Isak Dinesen

I thought of these words while I was making this new series of watercolour paintings.  A lot of different emotions come to the surface when I am trying to build a new series.  There is great excitement and disappointment as new images emerge.  I feel like so much of my life right now is working with a trial and error theory.  Its fairly up and down like when the sun shines through the rain and you remember how lovely a day can be. When I reach a block in the studio or with home life I always go to sea to find the cure or at least to breathe a fresh breath and then dive in again.
