If you've been following my work for a while, you may remember a series of small watercolors that I began in 2011 that I referred to as "Artifacts." These paintings were essentially life-sized watercolor portraits of small objects that began with  translucent slabs of agate and slices of tomato and ultimately grew to include many other kinds of fruits and vegetables, fall leaves, tea bags, birds, paintbrushes and tubes of oil paint, shells, stones....and the list goes on. I made hundreds of these paintings over the course of several years.

While the "Artifiact" series officially closed in 2019, I'm still occasionally in the mood to make work like this! This page is a work in progress- but below are some of the most recent examples.
