Original watercolour on arches 300lb paper permanently mounted on 3/4″ wood panel. The surface is fully sealed with archival varnish. This painting is float framed and ready for hanging.

Inspired by Venice, the title Transient Tide refers to the shifting, transient nature of the building. As light flooded into the narrow passage, I was drawn to the building’s weathered texture and decaying walls. Built on water, I imagine all the stories this building has to tell, its transformation over the years, rise and fall like a tide, certain yet fluctuating. I wanted to capture a sense of magnitude, as the building appears to extend and fade into the sky.

This painting was awarded a merchandise award at the 2021 Women in Watercolour International Juried Exhibition for the Landscape Category.  It was also awarded the Peoples Choice Award at the 2011 Sidney Fine Arts Show.
